Flyers come back and win with a little help from Brad Marchand's fluke shootout ‘attempt'


Well, that was probably the strangest way you've ever seen a game end, right? At least it was for me.

Just after saying how tired I was of shootouts, they pull you right back in. But that's hockey for you.

Thanks to NHL All-Star Travis Konecny, the Flyers found themselves ending Monday night with a 6-5 win over the Bruins.

An even bigger thanks though has to go to Brad Marchand, who decided to overskate the puck in his shootout attempt ... if we can even call it that.

Since Marchand grazed the top of the puck, it officially counted as his attempt against Carter Hart, thus ending the game with the Wells Fargo Center erupting in cheers ... and laughs.

Even better, social media threw a mini-party to celebrate the win and second straight over Boston on the season.

Nothing tops Gritty's tweet though ... if you know, you know.

And even with the game over and players celebrating on the ice, the puck that was just barely touched, can still be seen.

Legend says, the puck still remains on the Flyers logo and will haunt Marchand every time he returns to Philadelphia.
