MIN@DAL, Gm2: Stars pinball the puck around for goal

R1, Gm2: Stars score odd goal when a puck bounces of Alex Hemsky and Antoine Roussel before hopping over the net and in off Lehtonen's back

  • 01:44 •

Dallas Stars forward Antoine Roussel scored a goal Saturday that deflected off his skate from behind the net and off Minnesota Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk.

Roussel gave the Stars a 1-0 lead 3:54 into the second period. While he was behind the net, the puck hit his skate and deflected into the air. It went over the back of the net, hit Dubnyk near his head, and dropped into the net.

The play was reviewed to see if the net was dislodged prior to the puck crossing the goal line, but the goal was upheld.

Dallas leads the best-of-7 Western Conference First Round series 1-0.
