The Most Exciting Hockey Game Of the Year


And I didn't even see it live, just on this YouTube clip.

The Blues beat the Boston Bruins in a game that featured five goals in the final four minutes and 45 seconds of the third period.

The Bruins missed an open-net goal to seal the game and the Blues' David Backes batted one in as time expired, narrowly avoiding a high stick call in the process. T.J. Oshie and Brad Boyes iced it in the shootout.
