Well here's something you don't see every day.

Jakub Vrana put the Caps up 4-0 in the second period with his second goal of the game. The only problem was that no one knew that he had scored...for several seconds.

You can watch the play above.


Evgeny Kuznetsov carried the puck through the neutral zone and tipped it over to Vrana who was streaking on the left. He fired a shot from the faceoff circle and placed it perfectly short-side to beat Craig Anderson.

Vrana tucked the puck just under the crossbar top center. It was so perfect, the puck got caught in the back bar of the net and no one knew it was there.

The crowd didn't react. The players didn't react. The referee didn't react. Even Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin weren't sure where the puck was at first.

Finally, after several seconds, the referee signaled for the goal. Slowly, the crowd and players began to realize the puck was in the net.

It was quite the delayed reaction. The fans were ecstatic. Vrana? He was cool with it.
