Matt Read scores while a Harlem Shake occurs in Montreal crease (Video) (Puck Daddy)

The Philadelphia Flyers fell to the Montreal Canadiens 6-3 on Saturday night . They got behind the 8-ball early allowing the Habs to open up a 3-0 lead, but the Broad Street Bullies clawed back, with Matt Read cutting the deficit to 4-3 after a unique power play goal early in the third period.  A Sean Couturier cross-ice pass bounced around in front of Carey Price and froze just outside the Canadiens’ crease. Thanks to a fantastic job by referee Dennis LaRue to not whistle the play dead and a heads up play by Carlo Colaiacovo, Read was able to put home his second of the season: So would you call that a rugby scrum or more of a Harlem Shake ? – – – – – – – Sean Leahy is the associate editor for Puck Daddy on Yahoo Sports.
