Watch Parise Keeps the Puck out of Net While Trying to Score

It was a great effort by Zach Parise.

But it wasn't a good effort, if you know what we mean.

Watch how Parise lunges at a loose puck from behind the net during a goalmouth scramble in the third period of Game 1 of the Wild-Blues series at Excel Energy Center in Minnesota.

Unfortunately for Parise he's behind the net and the shaft of his stick can only go in one direction when torqued against the goal post. The puck was slowly rolling in until Parise's stick swats it away from the goal mouth and out of the crease entirely.

No worries, Parise tied the game with 23 seconds remaining to send it to overtime. He's a goat no more.
