The Detroit Red Wings put on a show with an incredibly smooth goal against the Buffalo Sabres Thursday night.

Niklas Kronwall, Andreas Anthanasiou and Justin Abdelkader raced down the ice, and what happened next was almost too sexy for the NHL.

Kronwall batted the puck up to Abdelkader, who seamlessly tapped it back to Anthanasiou for the goal. It’s unbelievable.

I damn near fell out of my chair this morning when I saw this goal. Absolutely unbelievable puck movement, player movement, vision and ability to put the puck in the back of the net. It doesn’t get much prettier than that goal.

This is why hockey is so awesome. It happens in the blink of an eye, and it’s never slow. Good luck finding a better goal than that anytime soon.
