Video: Alexander Semin scores from his stomach

Alexander Semin had a pretty good look at goal until he was tripped up from behind. With the official’s arm in the air, Semin managed to stick with the play and slid the puck towards the net while on his stomach. The puck somehow slipped past legs and bodies belonging to both the Oilers and Hurricanes and found the back of the net. We call these types of goals Ovechkins, right...
