Videos of Vrana’s highlights from Saturday are under the jump.
Vrana assisted on a goal by Mark Matheson. His hesitation on the half wall gave his teammate just enough time to find room in the slot. Vrana placed a perfect pass on Matheson’s tape.
Vrana’s goal came on the power play. After fetching a strong pass from Jeff Taffe at the side of the net, Vrana ripped a shot top-shelf from almost no angle, giving his team what ended up being the game-winning goal.
