This is one of the best moments of the 2022-23 NHL season.

Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark scored a goal against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. With the tally, Ullmark becomes just the 13th goalie in NHL history to score a goal. He’s the first-ever Bruins goalie to score.

The epic moment occurred with 48 seconds left in Saturday’s game at Rogers Arena. Trailing 2-1, the Canucks pulled their goalie for the extra attacker. Vancouver forward Conor Garland dumped the puck in on Ullmark…and the rest was history.

Ullmark collected the dump-in and fired the puck into the open empty net from his own zone to put the Bruins up 3-1. The shot soared over all the players on the ice and straight into the center of the goal. After scoring, Ullmark skated to the Bruins bench for a fly-by bench celebration.

The Bruins hilariously even had a social media goal graphic prepared for this moment:

Ullmark is the first NHL goalie to score a goal since Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne accomplished the feat in 2018. The Finnish netminder scored on an empty net against the Chicago Blackhawks on January 9th, 2020.

The Bruins have been going for the goalie goal all season, as netminder Jeremy Swayman just missed scoring on an empty net against Columbus in December. There’s still time for Swayman to score so Boston can become the first goalie tandem in history to score a goal.

Ullmark’s empty net goal Sunday gave Boston their sixth straight win, as they continue to dominate the NHL this season. The Bruins are 48-8-5 this season, which is good for 95 points. The next-best team in the Atlantic Division (Toronto Maple Leafs) has 80 points.

Ullmark has been sensational himself this season, posting a 29-4-1 record with a .937 save percentage and 1.88 goals against average. Ullmark is already the favorite to win the Vezina Trophy, and now he can add a goalie goal to his incredible 2022-23 resume.
