While most big-deal game pucks get found and passed on to the people who deserve them, every once in a while one slips through the cracks.
Colby Armstrong’s only goal for the Penguins during the Winter Classic is one of those pucks. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports:
Armstrong tossed a Sidney Crosby rebound past Sabres goalie Ryan Miller 21 seconds into the first period, but the idea of keeping the puck as a souvenir didn’t occur to him until someone mentioned it after the game. “I didn’t even think about that,” he said, laughing. “Now that you mention it, it would have been pretty cool to keep.”
Army, I’ve found your puck. It’s here, out for auction. If I had the dinero, I might well get it for you, but seeing as how it’s already up to half of my monthly rent and still climbing, well, I’ll report this one and let you do what you will. Nobody can ever say I don’t look out for my hockey dudes, even if there’s no way in hell they actually read this to know about it.
