Video: Hamilton goes top shelf for Bruins

Oct 23, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

Boston Bruins sophomore defenseman Dougie Hamilton gave his team a two-goal lead over the Buffalo Sabres and did so in spectacular fashion Wednesday night.

Hamilton jumped up in an odd-man rush, took a nice cross-ice feed from Brad Marchand and roofed his shot top shelf on Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, giving the Bruins a 3-1 cushion in the second period.

The Sabres had cut that Bruins’ lead to just one goal after 40 minutes.

The Hamilton goal started in the Bruins’ zone, after goalie Chad Johnson, making his first start as a member of the Bruins, had to bail out a teammate for a bad giveaway that led to a Marcus Foligno shot.

Johnson made the save, which led to the rush back up the ice and the Hamilton goal.

    “terrific goal”

    ugh… if it was against anyone else maybe and its not THAT terrific either way… clearly Buffalo has already thrown in the towel for this season.

      You’ve got a young second year defenseman playing his position and defending the net and then from possession driving the entire ice to get involved in offense and finishing top shelf…be bitter, but that was terrific from a hockey stand point.

        far from bitter, just saying.

        Love Hamilton and his game… its just not “terrific” is all (that particular goal).
