In hockey, a Hanrahan goal is scored when one player distracts the goalie, allowing one of his teammates to score without any trouble. This is not just simply screening; the goalie must be fully engaged with the distractor. Very rare. Derived from the movie SlapShot.
Dunlop's comments about the Long Island goalie's wife caused said goalie to attack him, allowing Braden to score an easy goal. Classic Hanrahan goal.
