Claude Giroux scores 100th career goal with impossible backhanded shot (Video)

Claude-Giroux-100th-goalPhiladelphia Flyers center Claude Giroux is one of the best offensive players in the NHL. He reminded us of that on Thursday night when he scored the 100th goal of his career in incredible fashion.

Giroux’s 100th goal came with 1:38 remaining in the game and proved to be the game-winner over the Columbus Blue Jackets. All of that would be impressive enough, but the goal also was easily one of the best you will ever see. Giroux was falling down after being shoved in the back, yet he somehow managed to backhand the puck and lift it over the glove of Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney.

The fact that Giroux was even able to get a shot off from such an impossible angle was amazing. What a fitting way to reach the 100th goal milestone.
