St. Louis Blues defenceman Carl Gunnarsson called his shot Wednesday night and delivered for his team in overtime, just not necessarily when, or where you’d expect.

Gunnarsson rang a shot off the post late in the third period that would’ve given the Blues a late lead in regulation. However, Gunnarsson remained determined and blasted a bullet from the point to secure the 3-2 victory, splitting the series against the Boston Bruins at one apiece.

After the game, Blues head coach Craig Berube explained the bizarre circumstances behind Gunnarsson’s Babe Ruth moment.

Gunnarsson couldn’t help but be impressed with himself and confirmed that he indeed guaranteed the win while in the bathroom.

Here is a full account of Berube telling the Blues about Gunnarsson’s prediction after the 3-2 win.

It was Gunnarsson’s first goal of the playoffs and it couldn’t have come at a better time, as the series resumes Saturday in St. Louis.
