NHL Game of the Year 2011-2012 Season?

Hands down this is the NHL Game of the Year for the first half of the 2011-2012 Season. The Bluejackets lead 4-1, and 5-2 at two separate points in the game but the Nashville Predators never gave up and fought their way back in stunning fashion.


Notable Game Stats:

  • The Blue Jackets scored 4 times on the Power Play (3 of them came in their first 4 tries all in the 1st Period)
  • The Predators scored twice on a Delayed Penalty Call (They also scored twice on the Power Play)
  • The Blue Jackets blew two 3 goal leads (4-1 and 5-2)
  • Jeff Carter had a Natural Hat trick in the First Period for the Blue Jackets (Unfortunately that wasn’t enough to get the W)
  • Martin Erat scores a beautiful breakaway goal with 8.4 seconds left in the game to put the Predators up 6-5 and complete the comeback!

But don’t take my word for it, you be the judge and check out the highlights here:

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
