Last night the Buffalo Sabres were taking on the Toronto Maple Leafs and three periods weren’t enough. The game went to overtime tied at two goals apiece. They didn’t play a lot of overtime though, under 40 seconds before Christian Ehrhoff ended it with a beautiful wrist shot.

Ehrhoff scored with a wrist shot from about 60 feet out. The best part, the shot went through the legs of James Reimer before finding the back of the net.

“I didn’t have the time to do a big wind-up there or get it hard,” Ehrhoff said, via ESPN. “I saw the opening between the legs and just put one through there.”

The Buffalo-Toronto match up has become a bit of a rivalry. Lots of Toronto fans make their way to Buffalo for the game.

“It is always really fun to play,” Ehrhoff said. “The fans that come down sometimes outnumber the Sabres fans, and it brings out the best in our fans, too. They are up for the challenge and they were really loud again tonight.”
