‘I almost passed out when I saw it’: Moment NY Rangers fan who forgot his glasses wins a new car after being hit by an impossible bullet out of the ice in the middle
- Ryan Rosado, 30, of Bloomfield, NJ, won his new 2023 Hyundai Tucson SUV after hitting the disc through a small hole in the central ice
- Rosado initially missed his shot from close range but took his chance from midfield despite forgetting his glasses
- The miraculous shot made Madison Square Garden into a sensation
- Along with the car, Rosado won a hockey stick signed by Mika Zibanijad, who wore his jersey at the shooting.
A New York Rangers hockey fan drove away in a brand-new car after taking a near-impossible shot out of the ice down the center through a puck-sized hole.
Ryan Rosado, 30, of Bloomfield, New Jersey, caused a stir at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night when he scored the winning goal in the first half.
The Rangers fan, who was wearing a Mika Zibanijad jersey, initially missed his first attempt from the blue streak which would have net him $500.
Rosado stood far on the ice in the center to win the new 2023 Hyundai Tucson SUV, and he shocked him as much as the crowd.
“My whole body was so numb, I didn’t feel anything,” Rosado told the New York Post, noting that he wasn’t wearing his glasses. “I think the disc jumped over a snow field and got in. I almost passed out when I saw it.”

Along with the car, Rosado won a hockey stick signed by Mika Zibanijad, who wore his jersey at the shooting.
Besides the new car, Rosado, a big fan of his flaming Rangers tattoo, received a hockey stick signed by Zibanegad.
The fan said the winning moment was the result of several coincidences.
Rosado told the newspaper that he only took the shot because his sister Kayla turned it down when she was a lucky fan chosen to play the game that night.

He also said that he had trouble figuring out where the photo was taken because he forgot his glasses at home.
Rosado noted that the timing wasn’t the best for him because the new car would replace his 2006 Infiniti, which had 204,000 miles and needed costly repairs.
Rosado’s win seemed to come at a price, as while coming out with a new car and memorabilia, his beloved team lost the game 4-3 to their state rival New York Islanders.
