John Klingberg Scores Knuckling Goal From The Neutral Zone

The Dallas Stars defenseman scored this thunderous goal to take a 1-0 lead over the Oilers in the first period tonight. If you look closely at about 27 seconds, you can see that the puck is actually on its side when Klingberg slaps it. This leads the puck to move much like a knuckleball would, and fool Oilers goalie Viktor Fasth. The movement is brutal, but you still expect Fasth to be able to stop a glove side, unscreened shot from 75 feet away.
