Watch All Calls of Alexander Wennberg's Spectacular Game 2 Goal Against the Lightning

We're still watching replays of Alexander Wennberg's filthy third-period dangle and goal in Thursday's Game 2 with the Lightning and imagine you are, as well.

Wennberg caught a breakout pass from Liam Foudy near center ice, applied the jets – but only for a second – before slowing up to go forehand-backhand-between-the-legs-to-skate-to-forehand, ripping the soul out of Tampa Bay defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and beating Bolts goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy off the far post.

“It was really nice to score that goal,” Wennberg said after the game. “Obviously, it makes it a 3-1 game, which gives us a little bit more room there, so it felt like a good time to pull it off, so it worked out.”

Worked out might be a bit of an understatement. The stick and skate magic was the final scoring of the night as the Blue Jackets evened their Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series with the Lightning at one game each.

Luckily, friend of the site @SpecmenceCBJ put together a reel featuring all calls from Wennberg's magnificent goal.
