Guillaume Latendresse Sick Goal Against Vancouver


At the 4:46 mark of the second period in tonight's game, the Wild were down 1-0 against a Vancouver team that looked to be ready to sit on their one goal lead. At the 4:47 mark of the game, Guillaume Latendresse decided he had had enough of that, and scored what can only be described as a sick, absolutely disgusting, sweet merciful heavens oh so very pretty goal.

Showing some moves, some raw physical strength, and some down right pure shooting talent, Latendresse fought of Dan Hamhuis, deked Kevin Bieksa, and put the puck directly under Cory Schneider's glove to pull the Wild even at one, and change the entire dynamic of the game. The fact that Pierre-Marc Bouchard would score just 21 seconds later to take the lead was not yet known at that point, but the fans at the X were suddenly alive, and the game belonged completely to the Wild after that.

This goal, however, is a thing of beauty.
