The goal Artem Anisimov scored last night was unconventional, but it counted the same as an aesthetically pleasing effort. The Columbus Blue Jackets center slashed a puck toward the Montreal Candiens’ goal during a scramble and got incredibly lucky. After taking a deflection off Daniel Briere’s stick, the puck rocketed into the air and landed just beyond goaltender Peter Budaj, who had been taken out of the play via a collision.
Simply put, it was slop. Very unique slop.
