It's probably not how Connor Bunnaman envisioned his first National Hockey League goal going in, but nevertheless it still counts.
The former Kitchener Rangers captain potted his first in Philadelphia's 6-5 shootout win over Boston on Monday night.
A shot from Flyers defenceman Mark Friedman hit one of Bunnaman's skates, bounced off a Boston defender, before getting past Bruins goalie Jaroslav Halak.
It was also a first for Friedman, who got his first NHL assist on the play.

The 21-year-old Bunnaman, who's from Guelph, was playing in just his fifth NHL game.
He spent four seasons with the Kitchener Rangers and was a fourth round draft pick of the Flyers in 2016.
Bunnaman turned pro in 2018 with Philadelphia's American Hockey League affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
