The Afternoon Shift – Nov. 1

Fist bumps are definitely in order today for our old friend Mattias Ritola, who scored his first NHL goal – the game-winner, no less – in Tampa Bay’s 3-0 win at Phoenix on Saturday.

The goal, Ritola’s second point of the campaign, came in his fourth game as a member of the Lightning and 11th NHL regular season contest overall.

As you’ll see in this highlight, Ritola tried a wraparound and the puck caromed off the skate of Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle and past Ilya Bryzgalov. Regardless of how it might have looked, your first NHL goal is always a thing of beauty.

Congrats, Mattias!
