Global Edmonton sports anchor Kevin Karius was in Ford Hall at Rogers Place filming with fans in the background when David Desharnais slipped the goal past Sharks goaltender Martin Jones. Check out how the nervous looks of team supporters turn into jubilation with the goal.

Also, Karius made up his own goal call on the fly, which was pretty neat. Overall the television camera did a nice job of catching the exuberance of the Oilers fans after the goal was scored.
