Twitter reacts to Ryan O'Reilly's spin-o-rama winner
Ryan O'Reilly delivered as memorable a moment as you can witness in a preseason hockey game, scoring this shorthanded spinning beauty in overtime to give the Avalanche a 4-3 victory over the L.A. Kings.
Is it an early candidate for Goal of the Year? Twitter was quick to anoint it so, and then some:
"That looked like a Peter [Forsberg] move for sure." - Roy on O'Reilly's OT game-winner #Postgame— Colorado Avalanche (@Avalanche) September 21, 2013
Preseason or not, beautiful/hardworking, shorthanded o.t. goal by O'Reilly gives Avs their 1st preseas. win. Fun stuff. Only just begun!— Marc Moser (@RadioMoser) September 21, 2013

Fewer had a better view of the O'Reilly heroics than his teammates on the ice...
