Video: Sharks’ Couture scores after doing splits

Mar 16, 2014, 5:13 PM EDT

Hockey can be a very unfair sport. The New York Rangers probably felt that way after the first period of Sunday’s game against the San Jose Sharks, as they entered the intermission down 1-0 despite a 20-11 shot advantage.

Then again, maybe everyone felt that it’s simply unfair that someone can be as talented as Sharks forward Logan Couture, who scored this seated splits goal:

NBC Bay Area’s Brodie Brazil managed to get a screen grab of the most ridiculous moment:

Couture, 24, has 19 goals (and counting?) in 53 games this season and has points in three straight games. It’s easier to see how he can manage such steady scoring with clips like these.

    Couture wasn’t doing the splits, it was more like him falling on his butt with legs sprawled (that anyone can do), then scored.

    But either way, nice goal.
