VIDEO: Daniel Paille's bizarre goal gives Bruins 3-0 series lead
Daniel Paille scored one of the weirdest goals of the NHL playoffs and helped give Boston a commanding 3-0 lead over the New York Rangers.
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.
