…..and the d man did screen the goalie. The puck just missed his blade and the goalie was sliding over to cover the angle. How many Wings could have launched a shot like that? Larkin and……Suter maybe and ???? Wings unfortunately don’t have anyone else to do something like that. Raymond’s wrister is nasty.

This was definitely a lucky goal but I'm glad he was lucky. That shot is usually a waste of valuable possession in overtime 9 out of 10 times

Right.
Goalie will want another shot at it because it was a shot goal to give up from that distance. Period.
Shooter can't control how bad the goalie is. That's why I saw luck's involved.
At the moment of release, I was like, why is he wasting the possession?
Someone who knows more about hockey than all of us once said something like "100% of the shots you don't take, don't go in."

Arthur Kaliyev would have put that shot top shelf, no problem. Even the greatest goalies in NHL history wouldn't have been able to stop it. Overrated Lucas Raymond has to rely on going 5-hole on weak goalies.

It is harder to score 5-hole goals now (it is harder to score in general because goalie equipment is so much better) than it used to be but players still shoot for it when the opportunity is there and they score goals regularly.
Quick release under the d-man's stick. Clutch. Beauty

One last note on the Raymond goal. This ice level view is awesome, he re-aligns the shot so ungodly quick while the goalie can't see.

If it was Datsyuk's work it would instantly be hailed as art.
