He shoots!

Outdoor rinks, such as this one in Grenville, Québec, just across the bridge from Hawkesbury, Ontario, are as Canadian as doughnuts, maple syrup, and road salt, eh?
It is the Stanley Cup final, he is in all alone on a breakaway, he shoots...he did not score. The goalie made a scintillating stop, thrilling the few spectators, including the skateless coaches-referees, who clunked around the ice offering encouragement and advice to the young boys and girls.
Evidently, outdoor skating is so popular that some city folk drive to Grenville so they can lace em up and go for a spin.
