Video: Alex Stalock allows long-distance goal

4 Comments

Martin Jones was pulled after allowing two Islanders goals on just three shots, and he might not have had the worst night of a San Jose Sharks goalie.

OK, Alex Stalock‘s been generally fine on Tuesday, but the Johnny Boychuk goal he allowed may just haunt his dreams.

Boychuk has a rifle of a shot, yet that won’t make Stalock feel much better about the goal he allowed from above the Sharks’ zone. You can watch it above.

The Sharks thought that there was a chance that the Islanders might have been offside on the play, allowing that moment to linger. That was an understandable choice by Peter DeBoer, but … ouch.

If that’s enough discomfort for Sharks fans, there are also Patrick Marleau trade rumors to make the night frostier.

Update: The Islanders ended up winning 4-2.

Good news for Stalock specifically? That fourth goal was an empty-netter. The bad news was that means the Boychuk tally was also the game-winner.

(Sorry Sharks fans.)
