Panthers player dives head-first, scores incredible goal

Derek MacKenzie invented a cool new way to score.

Hockey players don't usually dive in hockey unless they're blocking a shot or their name is Dustin Brown. Diving head-first to score a goal is ridiculous. This isn't baseball!

Derek MacKenzie doesn't care. The Florida Panthers veteran scored an incredible goal on Thursday by diving stick-first at a pass from teammate Dave Bolland. It was maybe the most improbable scoring chance of the season.


Then again, if that was a designed play then the Florida Panthers are geniuses.
