Jiri Sekac scores 1st NHL goal, dad goes nuts
Family in town from Czech Republic
On Monday, Montreal Canadiens forward Jiri Sekac was robbed of his first NHL goal after Tampa Bay defenceman Anton Stralman slid across the crease to knock the puck away.
Sekac wouldn’t be denied Thursday night against the Boston Bruins. With the game tied 3-3, Sekac buried a shot by Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask.
The goal, however, was nothing compared to the celebration by Sekac’s dad — Jiri Sr. — immediately following his son’s first tally.
After a double-fist pump, Jiri Sekac Sr. planted a kiss to the cheek of his son’s girlfriend.
