Flyers’ Vincent Lecavalier Hits All Three Posts, Doesn’t Score


The Philadelphia Flyers hosted the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night in a game between two surging teams in the Eastern and Western Conference, respectively.

While the Kings took home the victory with a 3-2 decision, it was a non goal that has the hockey world talking. Just after Jeff Carter made it 1-0 in vavor of the Kings in his return to Philadelphia, forward Vincent Lecavalier was fed a puck with a wide open net to shoot at. However, instead of burying the puck into the net for the tying goal, Lecavalier did something that he couldn’t do again if he tried. The former All-Star hit all three posts on one shot without the puck crossing the goalline.

The puck hit the right bar, bounced to the top and then rolled over to the left before being cleared by the Kings. The goal horn sounded and the fans at the Wells-Fargo Center cheered, but then quickly began booing after realizing that there was no goal to celebrate. It’s safe to say that Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was thanking his metal friends after this one.
