What's great about the goal too is what happened before the goal.
Its not like he was just standing there waiting for the team to get him the puck. After the faceoff, there was a bit of a scramble until Galchenyuk got the puck. He then settled his team down, let them get the PP set up, and passed it off to them, which eventually led to the goal.
One of the things we really missed about Markov was his ability to give his teammates those few seconds needed to set up the PP while he calmly controlled the puck. It makes a huge difference and, IMO, was one of the reasons our PP struggled without Markov, as the PP was reduced to dump/chase.
