Todd Bertuzzi’s 360 Spin Goal

Last night in the Detroit-Buffalo game the Red Wings set a franchise record with 15 consecutive wins at home. In addition, Pavel Datsyuk passed the 700-point plateau with three assists in the game. All-Star goalie Jimmy Howard recorded his fifth shutout of the season as the Red Wings routed the Sabres 5-0.

Todd Bertuzzi has been on a tear after starting the season off slow. In the first 14 games of the season he had only three points. But he’s turned it on as of late with 20 points in his last 24 games. In tonight’s game he had a goal and two assists and one of the best goals you will see this season as he slid a backhand spin-o-rama past Ryan Miller for the fourth goal of the game. He was pulled seconds later when Darren Helm scored 13 seconds after Bertuzzi. Miller didn’t have a good stretch of hockey between the first and second periods as he allowed four goals in a goal of 6:21 between the first and second periods.
