Everyone knows Kyle Rau is tough as nails. Here's how a cheap shot, true grit, and and a little crafty slyness led to a typical goal for Rau.
I apologize for both the quality of the photos and this post in general. First try. On my phone...
Rau absorbs a dirty cheap shot in the corner (away from the puck, which is behind the net) from Bulldogs freshman Austin Farley at 5:04 of the second period.
Rau dumps UMD's Luke McManus (playing the puck!) eighteen seconds later.
Four seconds after that, after Sam Warning tries a wrap around, Rau tucks the puck into the net and the celebration is on.
