We needed another look at the amazing coast-to-coast goal by Andreas Athanasiou. Truly a spectacular effort.

It’s not often you get to see a combination of skill and speed packaged up into one goal, but that’s the case with this beauty by Andreas Athanasiou from Saturday night’s victory over the Penguins.

As you can see above, Athanasiou’s 9th goal of the season is one that he won’t soon forget as he took the puck 200 feet before walking past Justin Schultz and beating Marc-Andre Fleury top shelf for good measure.

This is the kind of goal that we’re going to be seeing for a long time, and it was definitely worth another look here today. Andreas Athanasiou, we speak your name.
