At the end of Rocky III, the title character is taking the biggest and best shots that his opponent, Mr. T, can give him. And how does Rocky Balboa respond? He asks for more. Tanner Glass got his chance to do his Italian Stallion impression, with none other than the hardest shot in the West, Shea Weber, in the Mr. T role during a penalty kill in the first period.
Brooks Orpik had broken his stick, and as is his duty as a forward, Glass passed his own stick back to the defenseman. Then Glass skated out to the point and ate three Weber shots at point blank range.
"We had three guys standing up on the bench," head coach Dan Bylsma said. "At that point, it looked like Tanner was begging for Shea to shoot another one."
