OK, that was a goal to remember!

I’m not a big fan of ice hockey, and seldom watch it:  but this goal by Aleksander Barkov yesterday, for the Florida Panthers against the Montreal Canadiens, was really something.  He fired the puck backwards, between his legs, to wrong-foot the goalie.  Watch the slo-mo replay to see it.

Talk about a man on top of his game!  What’s more, he’s only 23 years old, with many years of development still to come.  What’s he going to be like at 33?

Barkov ended up with a hat-trick, and the Panthers defeated Montreal 6-3.  Congratulations to all concerned.
