A Goalie Goal in the AHL

Talk about a backbreaking goal. In a story found on the website of the Toronto Globe & Mail, Manitoba Moose goalie Drew MacIntyre scored the game winner against the Chicago Wolves on Wednesday. Well, he didn't actually score it in terms of a Ron Hextall (thanks to Illegal Curve for the correction), Martin Brodeur, Chris Osgood way. MacIntyre was the last player to touch the puck before Steve Martins pass sailed passed a teammate and into the Wolves net...and it happened in overtime. Oucho.

The best part of the video is the EXXXXTREME closeup of the Wolves player who tried to stop the puck from reaching the net. The camera man wants you to feel that players disbelief and pain. Really.

Ballhype: hype it up!

Nice find, I was looking for video of this.

Just a correction, Billy Smith didn't score from shooting it into the net he scored because he was the last guy to touch the puck.

Ron Hextall scored two goals from shooting it into the net.

Good point. I knew Billy was credited with one goal, by for some reason I thought I remembered him shooting one during his career as well.
