Another game, another highlight-reel goal for rookie forward Kirill Kaprizov.
The Minnesota Wild sensation made a crazy, between-the-legs move to open the scoring in the Wild’s 4-2 win against the Los Angeles Kings on Friday.
Kaprizov took a pass from teammate Jared Spurgeon [who had forced a turnover at the blueline] and bolted up the right side of the boards.
He completely baffled Kings defenseman Mikey Anderson with a move where he put the puck through his own legs, then skated around him and scored, burying the puck past Kings goalie Calvin Petersen.
It was the 20th goal of the season for Kaprizov and it was scored with extra style.
