David Legwand didn't have to go too far to end his eight-game scoring slump Friday. In fact, the Nashville Predators forward only needed to skate up to
centre ice to find the back of the net against the Edmonton Oilers.
David Legwand didn't have to go too far to end his eight-game scoring slump Friday.
In fact, the Nashville Predators forward only needed to skate up to centre ice to find the back of the net against the Edmonton Oilers.
Late in the first period, Legwand flicked a wrister from just behind the red line on a clearing attempt for a line change. The puck wobbled down the ice towards the Oilers net but made a last second hop that floated over goalie Devan Dubnyk's glove. Check out the goal below:
It wasn't the first time a fluke goal beat Dubnyk this season. He let one in against the Dallas Stars on Feb. 12, when Brenden Dillon's shot went off the glass, bounced off Dubnyk's back and trickled into the net.
Legwand's fourth goal of the season helped the Preds in a 6-0 rout of the Oilers.
