Every once in a while, a hockey player scores a goal that would have forced me to chuck a controller if it happened in a video game.

Thomas Vanek’s beauty would probably fit into that category. The talented (if irresponsibly paid) sniper made the Washington Capitals look silly on this overtime game-winning goal.

Vanek’s goal earned the Sabres their first home win of the season, his second of the night and also earned him the Goal of the Night too.
