Bruins center Erik Haula scored a couple of goals in the team’s 5-3 win over the Canadiens on Sunday, including a fun one in the first period.
Late in the period, Canadiens striker Mike Hoffman gave the puck away in the offensive zone, and was then penalized for slashing Haula on an outburst. Haula was awarded a penalty kick.
As Haula skated up to the puck, he appeared to be whizzing in an attempt to collect it. Haula then skated back, starting over and calmly firing the puck in the back of the net.
Here’s a look at Haula’s goalwhich gave the Bruins a 2-0 lead.
Haula scored again in the second period, assisted by Connor Clifton and Tomas Nosek.
The 31-year-old Haula has 17 goals and 26 assists this season.
Patrice Bergeron also scored a couple of goals in Sunday’s victory.
Bruins improved to 49-25-5.
