Justin Johnson has waited a very long time to play in the NHL. And in just his second career game, the 32-year-old got himself a highlight by felling a giant.
Johnson, a 32-year-old rookie for the Islanders, gave up seven inches and 50 pounds to the gigantic Scott, but popped off the Buffalo brawler’s helmet like a wine cork with a devastating left.
Scott couldn’t have been too sour about the loss – he laughs about his plight right after getting up. As for Johnson, the University of Alaska-Anchorage alum gave Islanders fans something to cheer about in a season that has now mercifully come to a close.
