He made the snipe look straightforward after a nice pass. That was not an easy shot and I think people are under rating the talent it took to simply snap it home. No hitch in his shot, just released it.
That quick release is his greatest weapon- more than his skating and play making.
The pass was perfect, Yakupov had over half of the net to shoot at. He made no mistake and buried it but it was far from a "skilled shot". Like I said it was all the pass. He was still in the right position to bury it though.
