For those still wondering, no, these two side-by-side clips are not of the same goal. Instead, they are two different goals cored by Finland’s Jarkko Immonen during a IIHF World Championship game against Norway that look exactly alike. Both came in the second period, with the first tying the game at 1-1 and the second putting Finland ahead 3-1. In both cases, the one-time pass also came from the same player, Mikael Grandlund, and they both caused the water bottle to pop off the net.
Norway would eventually catch on and prevent Immonen from scoring another goal like this, but by then it was too last, as Finland would go on to win the game by a score of 4-1.
