Shea Weber doesn't mind dating himself when talking about his on-ice exploits.

The Montreal Canadiens defenseman did just that when discussing the marker he notched in a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

Weber was asked postgame if it was his first wraparound goal.

"Since I played NHL '95, probably," he told the assembled media, including Sportsnet, with a smile.

The 34-year-old took a pass at the offensive zone blue line, flew in around the Penguins' net, and tucked it in on the backhand late in the second period.

Sportsnet's Eric Engels, whose question elicited Weber's original response, also revealed that his classic video-game reference was lost on his younger teammates.

The veteran rearguard's unlikely highlight-reel goal was his 10th marker of the season. He's racked up 25 points through 31 games in 2019-20.
