Everyone likes a good 'crazy goal, insane pass, huge tackle' and whatnot, and I figured we could do with a repository thread for them.

So to kick things off, this is a first year rookie for San Jose in the NHL who scored this goal last night. It doesn't look impressive in real time, but holy shit watch the slow-mo. I've been trying to get into the NHL more after going to a couple games last year and goddamn this sparked the interest again.



He speaks no English, and scored 4 goals in that game - youngest player to do that since 1988.

Didn't see this kind of thread coming from you Fun. That goal was insane. I had no idea what even happened until like the second slow-mo replay. I think I'm still not even sure what he did. Some sort of reverse kick-flip to fakey.

Fucking fantastic idea for a thread too. good job!

An oldey but a goody and also a what the fuck just happened moment.

I don't really associate these forums with sport, I frequent another (mostly footy) sport forum so I get it out of my system there.

This one I like just because vintage NFL shit is always good. And Dan Marino was a champ.

Those were both awesome. I played field hockey as a back and our keeper was pretty good, but wow. Also, that kid's technique is nuts! I can't really comprehend how the puck stays on the stick!

Another NHL one, goal scored by the goalie with .1 second on the clock in the third period.

No matter what you think of soccer, this is awesome. The replay from behind the net shows it best imo.

I'm not sure if it just because i'm in Germany or what but that video doesn't work fun.

I also have a new appreciation for ice hockey after having experienced my very first game on friday night. It was pretty awesome actually, crowd was crazy for only a division 2 match.

The team we were all going for won by a penalty shootout and the team they beat was coming first in the league. Much drinking happened afterwards.

Fucking copyright bullshit.



Yeah NHL is exciting as fuck, brutal and the supporters are passionate as fuck. I saw a AHL game in Chicago (Tier 2) and it was just as full throttle as an NHL match.
