Watch Wayne Simmonds score a goal off his face

Mar 31, 2012, 4:34 PM EDT

Scoring a goal in the NHL is hard enough, but scoring one off your face? Wayne Simmonds now knows what that’s all about.

During the second period of the Flyers’ 4-3 shootout loss to Ottawa, Simmonds was crashing the net while Brayden Schenn was firing away. Simmonds’ face happened to get a piece of the puck and putting it past Sens goalie Craig Anderson.

Simmonds needed six or seven stitches to take care of his forehead and while the Flyers were able to come back from a 3-0 hole, losing in the shootout works to Ottawa’s advantage putting added distance between themselves and the Sabres and Capitals.

    And to think they posted about Crosby taking a puck to the face like he was tough. When asking if that was the toughest goal he’s ever scored Wayne said, “Anything for the boys.” Wayne is a boss.
