Grand Rapids Griffins blast two scores through goal netting (Video)

The Grand Rapids Griffins fired two goals against the Milwaukee Admirals where the puck was shot through the net on both scores. 

The plays happened in the second period of the third game in their first-round Calder Cup Playoff series. The first goal was scored by Griffins defenseman Brian Lashoff. Then the second goal was scored by Griffins forward Anthony Mantha.

Both came on Admirals goaltender Marek Mazanec.

Lashoff’s goal came at the 1:17 mark of the second, and then Mantha’s goal came at the 2:51 mark. Both scores required reviews before being determined to be goals.

This is not the first time the Griffins have been part of a ‘puck going through the net on a goal’ situation. In January of this year Griffins defenseman Nick Jensen fired a shot on Lake Erie Monsters goaltender Brad Thiessen in overtime where the puck went through the net.

It appeared the shot glanced off the crossbar, but later was revealed to be a good goal.

Such a situation happening in one high-level pro game is rare. Twice in a game hardly happens. Three times to the same team in a season sounds almost impossible.

The Griffins won the game 4-1 to advance to the next round of the Calder Cup Playoffs.
