Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Tatar had one of the coolest shootout goals you’ll ever see.

Tatar won the game for the Wings Wednesday night against the San Jose Sharks with a move that froze the goalie in an embarrassing fashion.

I’m a big hockey guy, and I have another major hockey dude in the office. He described that goal as even sexier than when that cute girl in your college math class finally makes a move on you. I have to agree.

That move by Tatar was borderline erotic. I don’t know how he pulled that off, but I’m here for it. I’ve watched that video probably six times already. Just one after another. I slammed the replay button over and over again.

How is that move even possible? Imagine being so smooth and cool on the ice that you’re capable of pulling that move off. My life would be so different if I had a move like that in my arsenal. I would do nothing all day except hit the ice and pull that move off repeatedly.

Now excuse me while I take a moment to calm down and get my heartbeat back to a normal rate. What a wild start to the day.
