Midway through the second period of a scoreless game, Nate Thompson's wraparound attempt came out to Hedman at the point. The Sweden defenseman then took a slap shot purposely angled wide of the net which banked off the back boards, off Hurricanes netminder Justin Peters and into the goal.
Said Hedman afterward, via the Tampa Tribune: “That’s not the result you are looking for when you do that, but we’ll take it. That was a big goal for us, and I think it gave us a spark.’’
Seriously, you've got to call that next time, Victor.
