Break Through Adversity

Goals like this don’t ever happen without adversity. 

How are you handling adversity these days?

How are you helping others to manage adversity these days?

When I was dressing for the game that night for the Buffalo Sabres, nobody would have predicted this outcome.
Go ahead goal with one minute left in the game. (I would score into the empty net 30 seconds later)

It was only my fifth game for the Buffalo Sabres and I was playing with Mike Foligno and Paul Cyr (RIP) to a sold out building, against the Stanley Cup Champion Oilers.

Just 18 months after this game winning goal, Wayne Gretzky would move to my former team, the the Los Angeles Kings and Doug Smith would move from Buffalo to Edmonton.
