This is one you want back as a goalie.

This the kind of goal that haunts you as a goaltender, especially at the National Hockey League level.

Just moments after the San Jose Sharks had tied up the game the newly minted $8 million dollar, Sharks' defenseman Brent Burns, fired off a rocket from waaaay out at center ice and managed to beat Islanders goaltender Thomas Greiss to give the Sharks a 2-1 lead.

Full credit to Burns for a wicked shot on the goal but it's definitely one that Greiss is going to wish he could have back, especially after it results in the Islanders going from a one goal lead to a one goal deficit in just a few short seconds.
