Tom Lysiak Dies 5307
The 5th goal was the best. I’ll never forget it.
Lysiak passed the puck to me as I was coming into the slot area. Just then a huge opposing Flin Flon defenseman cross-checked me from behind, hitting me so hard that my neck snapped back and I began falling to my knees. At the same time, as I was beginning to fall forward, I cradled the puck on my stick blade. My feet left the ice and in mid-air, with all my weight on the stick, I was able to snap a wrist shot into the top right corner of the net.
I ended up falling to my knees, sliding with my arms reaching up in celebration. I was on such a natural high that I saw SPARKLES! From that moment on, “5307” became such an influential number in my life.
This record will never be broken: 5 goals in 3:07 equals 5+3+7= 15, 1+5 = 6
1 goal every 37.4 seconds equals 1+3+7+4= 15, 1+5 = 6
