It would be impossible to score a goal later in regulation than the one Brad Richards scored on Saturday night to give the New York Rangers a 3-2 win in Phoenix. We've seen buzzer beater goals in the NHL this season, but none have been as close as this one.

His shot beat Coyotes goalie Mike Smith with just 0.1 seconds remaining on the clock, and it couldn't have possibly been any closer.

Initially it was waived off, and at first glance there didn't appear to be any chance that it was a good goal. But the play was reviewed to make sure the puck crossed the goal line in its entirety before the clock hit zero, and sure it enough, it did. Barely. By the slimmest of margins. The Phoenix Coyotes were that close, probably a matter of inches, to having the game to go overtime and picking up at least a point in the standings.

Instead, they lose in one of the most crushing ways a hockey team can.

"Very frustrating," said Coyotes coach Dave Tippett following the game. "When we've seen a number of them like that before. The mistakes keep piling up, and you give away points like that. It's not good."

If nothing else, it's going to be amazing to see the Rangers' reaction to that goal and this win on Wednesday's episode of 24/7 on HBO.
