It certainly wasn't the most conventional way to score, but between his breakaway, a deflected shot, an empty netter and whatever we want to call the goal from Saturday, it may be fair to say that Guillaume Latendresse has scored in every way humanly possible this season.

For those who missed it, after taking what worked out to be an icing style stretch pass from Jakob Silfverberg, Latendresse broke in on the Lightning goal, got stopped on his first attempt and improvised a spinning slap shot to score for the Sens.

Take a look...

Here's what Guillaume had to say about the goal.

If you look at Jarome Iginla's five or six seasons of 30 goals not all of them are pretty. That's just part of being a guy who's supposed to score goals. Some nights it'll be pretty ones, some nights it'll be... different. That's the kind of shot that I've practiced from the goal line before, it's not the first time I've practiced that. So yeah, the bounce will come sometimes you just have to be around the net... That one yesterday I was just trying to put it on the net, the goalie was out. I thought I had it the first time on the first shot but I think I shot it off myself so basically I just turned around and shot it. If you gave me ten pucks like that, falling, I'm not sure 10 pucks are going to go in.

Occasionally teams go on stretches where everything goes right. That final 10 minutes of the first period yesterday may be the perfect example. He may not go 10 for 10 if you set it up 10 times, but he scored that one.
