Blackhawks Top Ducks 3-2 In Triple OT

It isn’t the prettiest goal you’ll ever see—and it’s no head goal—but it did the trick just fine. Blackhawks forward Marcus Krüger punched the puck past Frederik Andersen 16 minutes and 12 seconds into the game’s third overtime; the longest game in the Chicago Blackhawks’s 89-year history. (It was only the second… » 5/20/15 2:23am 5/20/15 2:23am

Potential Double OT-Winning Goal Disallowed For Being Too Awesome

Hockey players regularly play soccer in the locker room before games, and Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw pulled his best Ronaldo impression when he headed in a goal that left the city of Chicago thinking they’d won Game 2 of the Western Conference Final in double overtime. But no! It turns out that’s illegal. But… » 5/20/15 1:16am 5/20/15 1:16am

Serie A Free Kick So Good The Keeper Doesn't Even Try To Save It

Genoa and Torino are still fighting out the last few games of the Serie A season with hopes of a European league qualification still on the line. Omar El Kaddouri’s free kick to equalize for Torino today was certainly worthy of any international competition, as he placed it so perfectly Genoa keeper Mattia Perin just… » 5/11/15 4:39pm 5/11/15 4:39pm

Long-Range Half-Volley Golazo Is The Best Goal You Didn't See Today

Mushuc Runa may sit in the bottom half of Ecuador’s Serie A standings, but that didn’t keep Jorge Folleco from gathering up enough courage to strike this ball from well, well away from the goal off the half-volley. It stumped Universidad Católica keeper Hernán Galíndez and turned out to be the decisive goal in a 1-0… » 5/09/15 5:27pm 5/09/15 5:27pm

Augsburg Wins As Bayern Munich Looks Bad Again

Bayern Munich came out poorly in an attempt to rebound after getting crushed in Barcelona earlier this week, only to lose 1-0 to Augsburg after playing most of the match down a man when Pepe Reina earned an early red card. But we’re really here to talk about Raul Bobadilla, whose exceptionally clever goal is what made… » 5/09/15 12:27pm 5/09/15 12:27pm

Hulk Does It Again: Long-Range Strike Draws Zenit Even

Hulk goals lend themselves to hyperbole, and commentators already calling this ‘one of the greatest in Europa League history’ might be going a bit far. But still! This is Hulk, scoring a goal, and as we’ve learned through history that’s almost always a glorious thing. This one drew Zenit St. Petersburg even on… » 4/23/15 4:44pm 4/23/15 4:44pm

Indirect Free Kick Goals Will Always Look Crazy

Indirect free kicks in the penalty area are one of soccer’s rarest occurrences, mostly due to the handful of circumstances that can create them. We featured one from Carlos Tevez a few weeks ago, and here’s another that happened last night in Colombia’s top division as Cortuluá’s Carlos Ibargüen hammered one home… » 4/20/15 10:50am 4/20/15 10:50am

45-Yard Golazo In 89th Minute Delivers Win For Indy Over San Antonio

Indy Eleven downed the reigning NASL champions last night in San Antonio on this stunning long-range and late-game golazo from Sergio Peña. The Honduran’s 45-yarder in the 89th minute broke a 1-1 deadlock and extended his team’s unbeaten streak to eight games. But seriously, check out this goal! (It even left the… » 4/19/15 10:45am 4/19/15 10:45am

Antoine Griezmann Hitting Deportivo With The Bicycle Kick

There was at least one and probably two missed offside calls on this series from Atlético Madrid’s match today at La Coruña, but don’t let that take away from the athleticism Antoine Griezmann displays here as the Frenchman handles a knuckling header to deliver a bicycle kick off the half-volley. Griezmann has a… » 4/18/15 12:51pm 4/18/15 12:51pm

Craig Gardner Delivers From 30 Yards Out To Put West Brom Up 2-0

Crystal Palace’s four-match win streak looks to be coming to an end as they’re down 2-0 at home to West Bromwich Albion—and that second goal is a real screamer off the boot of Craig Gardner, whose 30-yard strike made it past Julian Speroni and likely would have beaten any keeper in the league. » 4/18/15 11:20am 4/18/15 11:20am
