Corey Perry Scores Impressive Goal From Knees, Puts Name in Ring for Goal of the Year (GIF)

The Anaheim Ducks haven’t lost a game at home this season, and the team moved into a tie for first place in the NHL with Monday night’s win over the New York Islanders.

Ducks sniper Corey Perry has played a big role in the team’s success this season — he’s second in the league with 20 goals — and he showed off his skill set Monday night. Perry scored twice in the 5-2 win, including an impressive goal scored from his knees.

During the second period, Perry deked out Calvin de Haan before tripping over the defenseman’s stick. That didn’t stop Perry, though, as he corralled the puck while still on his knees and flipped it up over the shoulder of Islanders goalie Anders Nilsson, giving the Ducks a 4-2 lead.
