Players knows this and are often using the backboard as a way to make a pass or putting the puck in certain areas if they have no direct lane or other better play.

Erhoff's plan was to shoot off the backboard to make it bounce in front/on the side of the goal to give Ott, who was crashing the net, a chance of getting the puck and take a shot. Nobody could have anticipate that the puck would go less than an inch off the post...

Made a quick google search and found this. Looks pretty similar.

Not Mason's fault at all. When has a puck come off the boards and hit the goalies skate 5 inches off the ice? Pure fluke.
