Hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs at Madison Square Garden Sunday night, the New York Rangers scored their second goal in shocking style.

By Robby Sabo

Derek Stepan surely was looking to score on Sunday night as his New York Rangers hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs. Though he probably didn’t expect to score quite like this.

Check out this long distance goal from the Rangers center (video above).


He hurled it from center-ice – a prayer that actually snuck under the pads and between the five-hole of Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier. As a goalie, it doesn’t get much worse than that.

This is especially the case for Bernier, who’s struggling more than any other goaltender in the NHL. He hasn’t won a game since last season while sporting a record of 0-7 this campaign to go along with a goals against average of above 3.00.
