Watch: Rick Nash's amazing off-balance goal leads Rangers past Stars
JAN 11, 2014 12:37p ET
Scoring goals with your feet planted on solid ground is overrated.
With New York locked in a 2-2 tie vs. the Dallas Stars with two minutes to play in the third period Friday, Nash crashed the net as a deflected shot from teammate Chris Kreider bounced off Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen's upper chest.
The rolling puck popped out to the top of the crease, where a Nash was fighting off a check.
The sequence of events led to this amazing, game-winning goal:
The tally was Nash's 10th of the season and his third in the past three games after recording only seven goals over his first 26 contests of 2013-14. Will this be the one that really gets the former winner of the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy going?
