It took Ales Hemsky a few games, but the kid is hot stuff after all, potting two goals (one of which was highlight reel worthy) in Thursday's game against the Wild (sorry Kirsten!) and winning it in the shootout with an unlikely mess-up that snuck its way past Josh Harding - watch for the look on his face as he turns the corner.
He swears he didn't mean to - in fact, he even says he didn't realize it went in at all until he heard the cheers. Not content, he showed up against in yesterday night's game against the Ducks to put the Oilers on the board first, and while it was Andrew Cogliano who played hero, tying the game up shorthanded in the last few seconds, Hemsky won the game for them yet again, with a shootout goal that more than made up for his last attempt.
