Jiri Sekac Goes Top Shelf after Spin-O-Rama

The Montreal Canadiens blasted the Pacific Division's most stingy defense on Friday night at the Bell Centre, hanging six on the Los Angeles Kings' backup goalie Martin Jones in a 6-2 victory, including this spin-o-rama beauty by Jiri Sekac.

Very nice presence by Sekac to display patience in hanging onto the puck instead of trying to squeeze it in while he was in close on Jones. Instead, Sekac realizes he has time and space and does a 360 before roofing a twisted wrister and sending the Montreal faithful (and P.K. Subban) into party mode.

Here's another look at the sheer laser ferocity of Sekac's wrister. 'Tis a beautiful thing... (notice how Drew Doughty wanted no part of that puck once it left Sekac's stick.)

Montreal has now won two straight at home after dropping three in a row to Minnesota, Chicago and Dallas last week. They are 19-10-2 and one point back of both Tampa and Detroit for first place in the Atlantic Division.
