The Luckiest Goal of the Year

Yandle header 560x268Defenseman Keith Yandle doesn’t score that often for the Phoenix Coyotes, so this bizarre goal will be a memorable one for him. It will be a memorable one for us as well, as the puck makes one of the strangest bounces we’ve seen before slipping past goalie Niklas Backstrom.

The puck actually appeared to be heading out of the rink entirely, before bouncing off of one of the glass dividers, making a 90 degree change of direction and going in off of Backstrom’s leg. The dozens of fans in attendance seem just as shocked by Yandle’s third goal of the season as Backstrom and Yandle.
