The Coyotes blew a 3-0 first-period lead to the Avalanche and found themselves in overtime trying to not lose in horrendous fashion. That's when Daniel Briere tried to fire a pass to a cutting Zach Redmond, only to have Hanzal swing his stick around and bat the puck past Mike Smith to give Colorado a 4-3 win. Have another look:
You couldn't hit a backhand one-timer any more perfect than that if you wanted to. While it was a freaky goal for Smith to give up, it's not even the weirdest one he's given up this week.
