Not exactly the moniker for a strapping young piece of western Canada timber, but that might be the kind of nickname that sticks to a guy.
In the post-game interview after last night’s 4-3 overtime win posted by the Caps over the Los Angeles Kings, Olaf Kolzig was holding forth on the shorthanded goal scored by Boyd Gordon to tie the game 1-1 just 1:43 into the second period . . .
"I keep razzing him about how weak his shot is, and I just told him he went up in the rankings after that goal. ... Maybe [King’s goaltender Mathieu Garon's] scouting report on 'Gordo' was that he throws muffins and was just surprised at how fast it came."
Muffin . . . go figure.
