The New York Rangers and Boston Bruins seemed to be destined for overtime in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Tuesday night until Daniel Paille scored what had to be the most bizarre goal of the postseason.
This was a case of a bad bounce turning into, well, a good bounce for the Bruins.
After a shot found its way behind Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist and bounced right off the goal line, Paille was right there waiting to put in what proved to be the game-winning goal.
What a bounce.
And here's a look at it again, in GIF form...
With that, the Bruins have a commanding 3-0 series lead and pushed the Rangers to the brink of elimination.
