The heat of battle does funny things to people and scoring a goal can unleash great celebrations. Scoring a goal on the road can make you do even feistier things. Case in point, San Jose’s Martin Havlat.
Havlat’s first period goal on Los Angeles’ Jonathan Quick was a beauty that helped tie the game at 1-1. With the game being in L.A. and the fans always being hostile, Havlat certainly appeared to tell Kings fans just who he thought was No. 1 on the evening. The Kings went on to win 5-2 and move into eighth place in the Western Conference.
You don’t suppose this might get the NHL’s attention now, do you?
