Red Wings forward Darren Helm scores a spectacular shorthanded goal

Red Wings forward Darren Helm scored a SPECTACULAR shorthanded goal against the New York Islanders, avoiding an Andrew MacDonald check and then firing the puck--and his stick--toward the net before goaltender Kevin Poulin, who was attempting to make a poke check, ended up kneeing the dekeing and dangling Helm.

Stick and puck score, Helm goes flying, Isles go flying, Wings up 2-0.

And here's his first goal:

The stick didn’t entirely cross the line, so only the puck-score counts. smile

Looks like Helm was trying to deke it around Poulin and it ended up going in off of Helm’s left skate.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
