DOTD: Scott Conway Scored The Goal Of The Year

Lost amidst Penn State’s biggest event this weekend was a play for the ages by the hockey team’s Scott Conway.

After losing to No. 17 Minnesota in regulation Friday night, the hockey team came out looking for revenge Saturday. The Nittany Lions prevailed 4-3 in overtime thanks to a Luke Juha goal. The passion the team showed was especially evident in freshman Scott Conway when he scored the first of his two goals in the game. Words don’t exist to provide a proper intro to how sweet this was — just check it out for yourself.

After tipping an outlet pass from Dylan Richard past a defender, Conway put his man in a spin cycle while he chased the puck. After beating Minnesota’s Ryan Collins, Conway found himself 1-on-1 with goalie Adam Wilcox. The freshman went backhand-forehand-backhand before roofing the puck over the confused goalie’s glove.

John Buccigross covered the game Saturday for ESPNU, and the big name likely contributed to it being the No. 3 play on SportsCenter this weekend.

As he told Onward State, “I like going to ball games, even if I’m not working. I try to go to every baseball park, every basketball [arena]. That way, when I do a highlight, I know what it feels like in there. That helps me do my job better.”

It was likely the best goal in Pegula Ice Arena’s history, and it’s nice to see it get the national recognition it deserves.

Thanks to Conway’s two goals in the game, Penn State was able to salvage a series split with the Golden Gophers. Penn State is tied for second-place in the Big Ten with Michigan State and sits two points behind Minnesota. Next weekend, the team travels to fifth-place Ohio State to improve its standing and bury the Buckeyes.
