That goal is just obscene. Something like that is every bit as difficult to pull off as those highlight reel dispy doodles. He charges into the corner, fights off two defenders along the boards, one of whom is basically holding onto him, while not only maintaining possession, but actually keeping the puck on his stick most of the time. Then he pushes the defenders away, makes a sharp turn, and bangs it in. If he can fix up his footspeed, we could have a steal here.
