Eric Fehr is a lot of things: a good dude, a hard-worker, and a Blue Jays fan (yech). But there is one thing he’s not: a dangler. Against the Bruins on Tuesday, Fehr changed that, busting out the video game moves on a breakaway sprung by Nicklas Backstrom. It’s a highlight reel goal and the capstone on Washington’s biggest win of the season so far.
We’ve got GIF and video of the overtime game-winner below.
As Fehr takes Backstrom’s pass, he goes forehand-backhand-forehand, then pushes the puck forward. He squeezes through two Bruins defensemen, and barely gets a piece of the puck as he’s falling down to the ice.
Speaking of Fehr, CSN’s Craig Laughlin says the “comeback player in the National Hockey League resides here in Washington.” He’s absolutely right.
