During Sunday's KHL all-star game, Lehterä (a 2008 3rd-round pick of the St. Louis Blues) was awarded a penalty shot. If you look closely, he has a slight grin on his face as he picks up the puck at center ice.

Physically speaking, inertia scored on Staňa, a Pittsburgh Penguin. In fact that is how I would have listed it in the box score: GOAL (penalty shot) Inertia, 1.

The Finns are crafty fuckers on penalty shots.

Check the move put on by Finnish league pro Tommi Huhtala — it's the last goal on this short highlight clip, below. Jump to :57 to skip his more pedestrian goals.
