On Monday, Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel fired a shot that squeezed through the pads of Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, but somehow did not go in.
As you can see, the puck spun through Bobrovsky’s legs and magically stopped right in front of the goal line before being cleared out — back THROUGH Bobrovsky’s legs — by Columbus center Ryan Johansen.
It was about as close as you can get to scoring without actually scoring.
That heads-up play turned out to be the difference in the game as the Blue Jackets would go on to win 2-1.
