Watch: Richard Rakell Butt-Ended, Knocked Down, and Still Scores



How about this for a greasy goal? Check out the determination from Anaheim's center Richard Rakell. He's knocked down by a butt-end by Brandon Bollig (no call, no worries), but gets to his feet, joins the rush and buries the tying goal in the third period with the assist from Corey Perry.

Check him out, spitting some blood as he high fives his boys at the bench.

The goal fired the Honda Center up, and it got Anaheim going as well. Just over two minutes later, Corey Perry buried a power play goal to give the Ducks a 4-3 lead at the 16:00 mark.
