Artemi Panarin had himself a night in Boston for the Blue Jackets' 3-2 double-overtime win.
The winger scored his team's first two goals of the game, each time answering a Bruins' goal to even affairs, and had the primary assist on Matt Duchene's game-winner 3:42 into the second overtime.
His second goal of the night deserves all of the love and adulation you can give a goal, however, because it was a beaut.
With Boston leading 2-1 midway through the second period, Bruins forward Charlie Coyle turned the puck over to Seth Jones in the high slot. Jones thought about shooting for a fraction of a second before finding Panarin at the bottom of the right circle. Panarin took one stride in and fired a missile past Boston goalie Tuukka Rask, beating him high glove side.
The angle was impossible. The shot was perfect. It had to be.
