Video: Watch ridiculous puck physics work in Pavelec’s favor

The puck can do crazy things sometimes and last night it worked in Winnipeg’s favor nicely.

Check out the big shot from Derek Morris that finds its way towards Ray Whitney who tries to put it past Ondrej Pavelec only to see it slide through the crease past the goal line and not into the net. That lack of goal helped preserve Pavelec’s shutout in a 1-0 win over Phoenix.

It’s nice to see that force field technology exists and has made it into hockey.
