If you haven't been paying attention to the Toronto Maple Leafs this season, Phil Kessel has been playing some pretty outstanding hockey.

He entered play on Wednesday tied for the league lead in goals, and during the first period of Toronto's game against the Winnipeg Jets, he made a fantastic play to set up his linemate, Joffrey Lupul, for his third goal of the season. There was a bit of a delayed reaction on the celebration because nobody seemed to know the puck went in. Lupul's shot hit the in-net camera with such force that it smashed into pieces, while the puck bounced out of the net -- and off of the camera -- as quickly as it entered.

The beauty of the camera, of course, is that it perfectly captured the shot before it shattered.
