Davison Scores 200-Foot Goal

By Bryan Jeon

On March 18, the Islanders’ Rob Davison was working the penalty kill in the first period and just wanted to clear the puck out. After several hops, the puck skipped by the glove of Toronto goalie Vesa Toskala for a 200-foot goal and ruined what easily could have been a shutout for Toskala, as the Maple Leafs won 3-1.

Although Toskala should have put his body in front of the puck, it was a pretty amazing feat. But does it measure up to David Beckham‘s famous goal as a member of Manchester United, which was hit from the halfway line (at least 50 yards out)?
