Video: Odd overtime, shootout winning goals as NHL returns from holiday
Not sure Shane Doan had this in mind when he envisioned his shootout opportunity for the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.
In fact, his shootout winner against the Anaheim Ducks, and Andrew Ladd’s overtime winner for the Winnipeg Jets over the Minnesota Wild were among some of the weirdest goals we’ll witness this season. Doan’s stick snapped as he took his shot in the shootout and yet the puck still somehow slid past goalie Frederik Andersen.
Two points for Arizona.
Doan: “I looked at my stick, like I couldn’t believe it. Then I saw out of the corner of my eye the puck in the net."— Sarah McLellan (@sarah__mclellan) December 28, 2014
Here is Ladd’s overtime winner for the Jets - a wrist shot that went over top of the net, hit the glass, rebounded back and went in off the back of Minnesota’s emergency call-up goalie John Curry.
Two points for Winnipeg.
