Boston Bruins

You need to watch this Charlie Coyle goal. The Bruins center made an impressive play to bat the puck out of the air and in to give Boston a 1-0 lead early in the second period of Game 3 against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Watch above as Coyle bats the puck out of mid-air off a rebound from a Brad Marchand shot. The baseball references came in flying, and for good reason.

As of this writing, the Bruins led 1-0 more than five minutes into the second period.
