The story Heals always mentions is...

His first game with the Isles it was a pre-season game against the Pens.

Game goes to overtime and it's a 2 on 1. Jagr and Lemieux.

Jagr has the puck. Healy takes the puck carrier.

A young Vaske is the DMAN and is supposed to take Lemieux, but doesn't.

Jagr passes to Lemieux and the Pens win.

Healy feels good about his performance, and that it wasn't his fault they lost until he goes back to the dressing room where Smith rips him a new one and says...

"If you think a rookie is not going to pass to the 2nd best player in the League then you better get your head out of your *ss!!"

or "the short career" that Amorican quotes (Heals has told the story several times and the ending seems to change a bit, but you get the point).
