If you put about 98% of NHL players through this same exact situation, I’d bet those players have a 0% chance of scoring. First of all you have to dance yourself into the middle of 6 opposing players while holding onto the puck, THEN you gotta score the goal. Lucky for Shark fans, Brent Burns is not in that 98%.
Burns tried to avoid it and stay out of the middle but you can see after his first shot rebounds right back that he decides “we’ll let’s try this one”. Then when he’s in the thicket, he goes forehand, backhand, top cheese and the Sharks break the 3-3 tie with just under 2 minutes remaining. This could be the goal of the year because it’s just bananas.
