Not every player can have the speed and silky mitts of Connor McDavid. Some of us have to be grinders. If you’re a grinder you’re shaking your head in understanding right now. You’re picking up what I’m putting down. For those of you superstars that don’t know what us grinders have to do, here’s a short summary.
Us grinders have to muck it up in the corners and go to the tough areas to even get an opportunity to tickle the twine. Hell most of us grinders are only on the ice to give our ringers a breather so any kind of scoring chance are few and far between. When us grinders score a goal it’s always of the “greasy” variety.
Tonight we celebrate a fellow grinder being greasy. Welcome to the #3G club Conor Garland. Proud to have you in the Greasy Grinder Gang.

Also this bad mf’er did an interview while he was still bleeding.

After further review: By scoring this goal Garland becomes the first rookie in Coyotes franchise history to score at least one goal in four consecutive games since Teemu Selanne did it for them when they were the Winnipeg Jets 1.0 in 1992-93. Guess he isn’t a true grinder like us but he’s an honorary member due to this goal.
