Mattias Ekholm scored a beauty of a goal from his butt, opening Tuesday night's scoring on Carey Price of Montreal. The Predators would go on to win 3-2 in overtime.
Mid way through the first period, Ekholm intercepted a blind Tomas Plekanec clearance in-stride and proceeded to bum-rush the Canadiens' net. He utilized a roller hockey move to split the defense and scored on his own rebound from his butt. Go find a highlight. It was his first goal since Jan. 17th, a span of 28 games, and he now has six goals and 16 points this season. Mar 25 - 3:42 AM
