Johan Franzen Scores A Superman Type Goal
Total Pro Sport – The Mule Johan Franzen of the Detroit Red Wings scored an amazing Superman type goal flying through the air, in a losing effort to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night 5-4.
Franzen made it 4-3 with a spectacular effort at 3:52. He made a move and jumped around St. Louis defenseman Mike Weaver in the slot, then beat Mason as he was falling to the ice for his 33rd goal. [SportsLine]
This goal almost reminds me of when Bobby Orr flew through the air and scored an amazing overtime goal to beat the St. Louis Blues and win the Stanley Cup, take a look.
