How sweet for him to score the GWG in OT of game 7 to boot. :)


Hard to forget his two game 6 OT goals in 2001, the Gonchar giveaway and the Buffalo winner after Mario's Immaculate deflection. Always felt bad they flopped versus the Devils that year, as that was one of the years that could have been... (93, 96, 10 among others)

Yep, that is what I always think of when I think of him.

Eh...the Devils were clearly the better team that year.

This is an excerpt from one-year-old autobiography of Pavel Horvath, the captain of Victoria Pilsen soccer team. In it, Straka lists the painkillers and other pills he apparently takes regularly. They include:

Stilnox = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zolpidem
Lexaurin = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bromazepam

I seriously suspect he may be the Highlander.

He did not retire. The first game of the new season - 2 goals:

Just saw this thread. Wish I could have watched that live, but so happy to see Marty win it (with his OT goal at that) and glad he's back this year. He's my all-time Penguin Czech hero and Plzen is a great town too. Thanks for all of your great comments and work for this site, Tomas.
