Yeah, but he scored the goal for the entire nation of Canada.

The other stuff he does for the city of Pittsburgh and a segment of fans.

It's the only time guys like me will cheer for him.

And it was after Canada had choked away the lead with 24 seconds left and were on the precipice of one of the most devastating losses in our country's history.

So I'd say the goal will mean something, and deservedly so.
