In case you missed it last night, Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk single handedly ended the San Jose Sharks franchise last night. At least, that’s the way it felt when Tkachuk went through the legs (AGAIN!) for an incredible goal of the year candidate.
Check it out:
Are you KIDDING me!?!
So nice, we have to see it twice:
Absolutely filthy. Love it.
You may recall that Tkachuk pulled out this move earlier this season, in overtime no less, to earn a victory over the Nashville Predators:
Safe to say at this point that the between the legs goal is Tkachuck’s thing now, yeah?
You know what? No matter what your feelings are on Tkachuk or whether you're a Flames fan or not, you can’t deny this kid’s skill. The Kassian turtling episode is in the past and the kid stepped up to settle the score. Personally, he lost some respect in my eyes with how that whole situation played out, but again you can’t deny skill like this.
The kid scores incredible goals and isn’t afraid to muck things up out there. I can respect that. Keep doing you, Chucky.
