Watch: Jonathan Toews scores from behind goal line vs. Islanders

Wednesday March 18th, 2015

With his goal against the New York Islanders on Tuesday, Jonathan Toews brought new meaning to being “good in the corner.”

Just over seven minutes into the first period at the United Center, the Chicago Blackhawks captain played the puck into the corner behind the Islanders’​ net. Toews then flung a backhand shot toward the goal from behind the goal line, and the puck somehow slipped past Michal Neuvirth and into the net.

Toews added another tally nine minutes later and Chicago scored again in the second period to take a 3-0 lead.
