NHL fans witnessed what was probably the goal of the year thus far in Sunday’s Canadiens-Panthers game.
And sure, most sports fans were watching the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night, but there were some who saw Sasha Barkov score a ridiculous goal that required a high degree of difficulty.
A number of NHL players wouldn’t have even attempted to do what Barkov did, as they’d have been worried about thwarting the potential goal-scoring opportunity. Not Barkov, though, who drove to the net and uncorked a ridiculous shot through his legs for the goal.
That’s about as good as it gets.
