This may be the best fan intrusion since last fall, when a fan snatched a football from a pro quarterback: This week, the Montreal Canadiens were practicing when a fan slipped onto the hockey rink, in full gear — and he went right for the net, trying to score. He was an amateur, hoping to prove he could play on the highest level. The man didn't get in trouble, but he didn't score either. The Canadiens' star goalie blocked his shots at the net.
