David Schlemko's 'Forsberg' shootout move gives Flames victory (Video)
When we thought of players in the NHL with the skill, speed and bravado to attempt the famous Peter Forsberg ‘Stamp’ goal, David Schlemko rated very low on the list … before Thursday night.
Check out this beauty by the Flames defenseman in the eighth round of Calgary’s 4-3 shootout victory over Boston.
Schlemko has just nine goals in 213 games played in his NHL career. The Flames are his third NHL team this season. But if Calgary makes the playoffs by say, one point, the Flames will have to thank Schlemko for this brilliant maneuver.
Said Schlemko to NHL.com: “Maybe it was a little risky if we had to score to tie it, but I thought I might as well go for it.”
