Video: USHL Player Dives For A Shorthanded Goal

In the second period of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders game against the Green Bay Gamblers, RoughRiders' Landan Smith scored his fourth goal of the season, a shorthanded goal, in unlikely fashion.

Down 2-1 at the time and killing a penalty, Smith pressured the Gamblers' defense who tried to regroup but shot the puck into Smith. As the puck bounced into the Gamblers' zone, Gamblers goalie, Ryan McKay, left his crease to play the puck. Smith then dived and swatted the puck up and over McKay before barreling into McKay and the end boards.

The RoughRiders went on to lose the game 5-6 in overtime.
