Video: Lecavalier’s shot hits crossbar, both posts


The Los Angeles Kings got an early second period goal from Jeff Carter in last night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, but Vincent Lecavalier nearly tied it just a couple minutes later when he was presented with a wide-open net thanks to a pass from Brayden Schenn.

Lecavalier took his shot, but it ended up hitting both posts and the crossbar. A review determined that it wasn’t a goal, but it had to have been a tough call, as you can see below:

“Honestly, I wasn’t sure,” Lecavalier told CSN Philly when the subject of whether or not his shot should have counted came up. “I thought it hit the back of the crossbar, like the back of the net under the bar … I couldn’t believe it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen three posts.”

It proved to be costly for the Flyers, who went on to lose 3-2. Meanwhile, Los Angeles has won three straight and has a comfortable hold on the third seed in the Pacific Division.
