Karl Alzner just scored his fifth goal of the season and the 12th goal of his career.
The goal came in the first period against the New Jersey Devils (Roy Rogers alert). Alzner joined the attack, which I hope Devils coach Adam Oates hated, and hit the back of the net from below the circles.
Ronald McDonald found the goal scintillating.
Adam Oates hated it.

Like I said, that makes a five-spot for Alzner, now his best season by three goals. The increased output isn’t from shot volume– Karl’s actually shooting less than he did last year. But the shots he’s making are more dangerous– due in part to Barry Trotz encouragement to participate in the offense.
Meanwhile, an Oates team is going to miss the playoffs for the second straight year.
