The Abbotsford Heat set an AHL record this week by scoring 2 goals in 3 seconds.
You can watch a video of the amazing feat below but prepare to be disappointed. The goals happened so quickly that video doesn’t actually show the second goal. The TV announcers were showing a replay of Steve McCarthy’s shorthanded goal when the puck flew past goalie Ben Scrivens for the second time in three seconds.
According to the Vancouver Sun, center Ben Street hit a slap shot immediately after the face off and knocked the puck past Scrivens.
“I tried to go forward myself and got pretty good wood on it. I got it high enough that he didn’t pick up on it. I picked the right club, I guess.”
Abbotsford goaltender Barry Brust said that he felt bad for Scrivens after the puck hit the back of the net for the second time in three seconds.
“That was pretty weird and I can definitely sympathize with him … I’m just glad it wasn’t me.”
The Vancouver Sun reports that the previous AHL record was two goals in five seconds. The NHL record stands at four seconds.
Here’s a video of the Abbotsford Heat scoring 2 goals in 3 seconds. Well, it’s a video of the heat scoring one goal, and then a video of the team celebrating another goal.
