Edmonton Oilers young stud Taylor Hall scored two goals in eight game seconds in Thursday night against another NHL team (the New York Islanders). Hall was the first overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft.
It takes me more than eight seconds to realize that my alarm clock is making that God-awful noise in the morning and Taylor Hall put the same puck behind Evgeni Nabokov.
Edmonton’s offense was useless outside of these electric eight seconds. The Islanders beat them 3-2. But hey, these eight seconds were kinda cool. (That’s what he said.)
For those scoring at home, Hall’s goals beat Wayne Gretzky’s franchise record for fastest consecutive goals by one second. According to Wikipedia (know-it-all), the NHL record for fastest consecutive goals is four seconds, and it has been done twice.
