VIDEO: Matt Hendricks Plays It Cool On A Breakaway

When Washington Capitals enforcer Matt Hendricks stripped Luke Schenn of the puck and darted down the ice on a breakaway, it ensconced a new episode of goaltender versus fighter. While these rugged players prefer to use their hands as weapons, there are scattered moments when they will surprisingly be in all alone.

Colton Orr looked like a natural on his chance last season and George Parros wasn't too bad himself. On Saturday, Hendricks joined the club in Toronto.

J.S. Giguere fell for just about every fake Hendricks used, as the finish was clinical. Proving his hands aren't formed of stone, he's definitely given head coach Bruce Boudreau something to think about in Washington's next shootout.
