It would be interesting to ask Dallas Stars center Vernon Fiddler if he called “money” on his backhanded goal during Tuesday night’s against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

With the game tied 1–1 in the third period, Fiddler skated down to the corner and threw a backhand shot from the corner.

Well, geometry doesn’t always make sense, kids, as Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer found out.

Call it skills or luck, whatever it was, the 35-year-old still has it, along with his second goal of the season.
