The goal was all made possible by Dmitry Orlov who somehow managed to get his point shot to the net
After the puck ricocheted off of several Leafs players’ sticks, Backstrom kept his calm and deposited the slowly rolling biscuit past Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen.
What a huge goal.
And thanks to this man, we’re going to overtime.
