The Buffalo Sabres went into Sunday night’s contest against the Anaheim Ducks as the only winless team in the Eastern Conference. Entering the game with an 0-4-1 record, head coach Phil Housley decided he needed to make some moves to the lineup to shake things up.

With Robin Lehner starting the season 0-3-1 with a 3.14 goals against average and a .900 save percentage, Housley gave backup goalie Chad Johnson the start instead. Since the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native has the same name as a former NFL wide receiver, the latter was prepared to step up to help the Sabres after finding out the news on Twitter.

Although the man formerly known as Chad Ochocinco was ready to go, it was the 31-year-old goalie who got the start and the win for the Sabres and it was a pretty big victory for the team’s rookie head coach.

Note to any teams looking for a goalie: Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson is ready to go if you need him.
