The Sports Archives Greatest Moments – Hockey Goals 2 Seconds Apart!

In a game between the Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues on December 19, 1987, the Blues’ Doug Gilmour scored just 2 seconds after Ken Linseman scored for the Bruins.

The Blues were up 6-4 when Linseman closed the gap to 6-5 with 10 seconds left in the game.  On the following face-off at center ice, the Bruins had pulled the goaltender for an extra skater and when the puck was dropped, Gilmour smacked it directly at the empty net which took 2 seconds to get there!    Official time of the goal was 19:52 and the Blues won the game 7-5.
