Niklas Kronwall scores bizarre goal that bounces off the boards and Jean-Sebastien Giguere’s leg

Tuesday night was a busy night in the NHL.  There were highlight reel goals, close games, fights, and this bizarre goal.  Joe Louis Arena has always been known for their lively boards, but you still don’t see this often.  Late in the second period on Tuesday night, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall shot the puck wide, it bounced off the boards and then off of Colorado Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere’s leg and in the net.  Nicklas Lidstrom used to shoot wide on purpose if there was too much traffic on net and hope for a funny bounce, and it appears that his style rubbed off on Kronwall.  Teams will continue to be leery of the boards at Joe Louis Arena after this goal.  You can bet that this frustrated Giguere and he would have wanted that one back.
