The assist may have not been lucky, but judging from the replay, it was just about 75 feet also (sweet feed)... The Stars won the game, 3-2, dropping Edmonton to a dismal 6-14-2 for the season.
Right now only Forsberg with 22 pts in 21 games is the only player with more points per game than Klingberg's 8 points in 8 game.— Brian Harling (@Leafsbh) November 26, 2014

Dallas' John Klingberg Fires a 75-Foot Knuckler Past Viktor Fasth
When you're tied for last in the NHL in points, it's pretty safe to say that things aren't going well for your squad. That's true of the Edmonton Oilers, who've struggled all season to build any kind of momentum, and after this goal by Dallas Stars' defenseman John Klingberg, it's doubly true. This may have been a SERIOUSLY lucky goal for Klingberg (did that puck have eyes?), which sailed through the air like a sparrow with a chemical imbalance in its brain before finding the twine behind Edmonton netminder Viktor Fasth, but the Stars' rookie is now skillfully averaging a point a game in his first 8 NHL games after also picking up an assist on Tuesday night on Tyler Seguin's backhand goal.
