Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Rostislav Klesla went to dump the puck in to get a line change when he got a very nice bounce.  The puck bounced about five feet in front of Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford and skipped right over his shoulder.  The 100 foot goal tied the game at one and changed the momentum of the game completely.  The Coyotes went on to win 3-2 in a shootout and Crawford has immortalized himself on the lowlight reels.
