With Baseball spring training in full swing (pun intended!) Nick Bjugstad of the Florida Panthers showed us he has some batting skills. Considering he plays in the State where most of spring training is played, it makes sense.

Bjugstad used a chocked baseball swing to score against the Montreal Canadiens. Aaron Ekblad shot the puck on net from the left point, Mike Condon gave up a big rebound to his right which Bjugstad then batted into the back of the net. They checked quickly to see if Bjugstad had hit the puck higher than the crossbar but he didn't so his goal made it 2-0 for the Panthers.

The Panthers are looking to possibly win the Atlantic division. So they seem to be pulling out all of their tricks to make it happen.
