Blandisi's awesome goal

NJD@PHI: Blandisi tallies on between-the-legs shot

2/13/16: Joseph Blandisi corrals the puck on the doorstep and squeezes a between-the-legs shot past Michal Neuvirth to open the scoring

  • 00:54 •

New Jersey Devils forward Joseph Blandisi scored on a between-the-legs move for the opening goal of their game against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday.

With Flyers defenseman Nick Schultz in the penalty box for interference, Blandisi corralled the puck along the goal line to the right of Flyers goalie Michal Neuvirth. As he skated below the goal line, Blandisi put the puck back between his legs and beat Neuvirth with a forehand shot inside the right post.

The goal stood after a video review confirmed it had crossed the goal line, giving the Devils a 1-0 lead.

It was the fourth goal of the season for Blandisi, a rookie who has nine points in his past nine games.
