Denis Smirnov’s Goal Earns Spot On SportCenter’s Top 10 Plays Saturday Night

0

Those Nittany Lions are back at it again with producing top plays on the ice. This time it was on the stick of Denis Smirnov when he netted a nifty backhanded goal past Michigan State’s Ed Minney in Penn State’s 5-3 victory last night.

The goal was featured in┬áthe No. 9 slot on last night’s SportsCenter Top 10 Saturday. Smirnov’s tally was an insurance goal scored with 2:10 remaining in the game that sealed the win and the weekend sweep over Michigan State.

The Nittany Lions have been no stranger to top plays this year: they were featured consistently on the NCAA Top Plays of the Week for the first three weeks of the season and it seemed that every game there was a must-see moment.

Look for Penn State’s return to the NCAA Top Plays of the Week in the next couple of days — there’s a good chance for “Smirnov on ice” to make an appearance on the next edition.
