Edmonton rookie NAIL YAKUPOV scores with 4.7 seconds left to forge a 1-1 tie with Los Angeles, then goes '91 Theo Fleury by sprinting down the ice and sliding on his knees.
Too much? NO WAY. It was ORGANIC. It was HONEST. It was FUN.
Yakupov's celly was spontaneous, not malicious. It was a kid displaying legit joy after knotting up the defending Stanley Cup champions in the game's dying moments. Oilers win in OT. If the Kings didn't like it, they should have done something about it.
