'It's pretty funny to watch': Ducks' Beleskey describes Game 5 celebration (VIDEO)

The Ducks' Matt Beleskey had an epic celebration to "the biggest goal I've ever scored."

The goal, which won Game 5 in overtime for Anaheim vs. Chicago on Monday night, gives the Ducks a 3-2 lead Western Conference Final ... with Game 6 set for Wednesday night.

On Tuesday, Beleskey went in-depth on his celebration, including the comparison to one of hockey's most iconic photos, and the emotions he felt at the moment his shot found the back of the Blackhawks net.

From Belesky: "I think you can see me trying to get out of there pretty quick. I ended up on my stomach, and it's not very fun to celebrate with just the ice. I just wanted to get out and see all the guys, so I kind of army-crawled my way out of the pile.

"I watched it again when I was eating here in the arena after the game, and my wife and I watched it a few times when I got home. Then obviously on Twitter you get all kinds of hilarious reactions. It's fun seeing that.

"Obviously Ducks fans are amazing, the support they've given me all year, plus last night, was just a lot of fun. With that and the texts I was getting from everybody, it was a record-setting night for sure."
