Phaneuf Destroys Rink

In a single game Calgary Flames All-Star defensman Dion Phaneuf managed to break not one, but two panes of glass.  The more impressive feat however was when he broke a pane form his own blueline, 160 feet away.  Most players do not do this once in their career and Phaneuf, new to the league has accomplished this feat twice in one game.  This helps add to the fear other players must face when going to block one of his cannons from the point.

This brings back memories of Al Macinnis back when he was a Flame blasting shots form the point.  With the All-Star weekend coming up we can get an idea of what kind of velocity Mr. Phaneuf is bringing from the point!
