Red Wings vs. Stars: Jonathan Ericsson scores off of perfect screen

Ronald Martinez

Richard Bachman had no chance.


The Red Wings are going to make the playoffs. Again. All thanks to some perfect work in front of the net.

Richard Bachman dived to make a save, but quickly recovered. He followed the puck as it crossed from the corner boards to the point...and then he nothing but a saw a wall of humanity.

It looked like Bachman's mind went to screensaver mode on that one. By far the easiest goal of Jonathan Ericsson's career. The Stars are ending their season quietly by letting the Red Wings clinch a playoff berth on Saturday. It's 3-0 in Dallas.
