Video: Alexander Radulov’s dirty dangle

Apr 1, 2012, 10:35 AM EDT

When it was announced Alexander Radulov would be leaving the KHL to re-join the Nashville Predators, many wondered how his skills would translate to the NHL. He would be dealing with a smaller ice surface, better defenders and the added intensity of a playoff push — not exactly a recipe for flashy play.

On Saturday against Chicago, Radulov showed he’d be just fine:

Slick goal, for sure…but to be fair, part of it involved Radulov dancing around 40-year-old Sean O’Donnell, who played four games in all of March.

(Though to be completely fair, Radulov also dangled through Brent Seabrook, who tossed out a cursory poke check.)

    It was an impressive goal but just as impressive was the way he left #11 hanging.

      #11 – Legwand (had to look it up)
