WATCH: NHL player scores goal with his face

Scoring a deflected goal in ice hockey can be a serious business: just ask Mathieu Perreault of the Washington Capitals.

It takes something special, then, to force a league veteran to the ground. Something like… a puck rebounding off his face with sufficient velocity as to take a nearby goaltender completely by surprise.

In a word: BLARGH!
