Erik Karlsson continued his brilliant play during the Stanley Cup playoffs Thursday night.
The Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers were tied with just over four minutes left in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series at Canadian Tire Centre — and that’s when Karlsson struck.
The Senators defenseman corraled the puck near the boards and launched a shot from an almost-impossible angle toward the net. Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist was stellar all night, but Karlsson’s shot somehow found its way past him, giving the Sens a 2-1 lead.
Take a look at the ridiculous goal.
Karlsson joined an exclusive club with the winning tally.
The Senators and Rangers will play Game 2 of their best-of-seven series Saturday afternoon.
