Hurricanes vs. Maple Leafs: Lupul scores end-to-end goal

USA TODAY Sports

Joffrey Lupul beat all the Hurricanes to score this amazing goal, and an awesome kid celebrated.

In the third period of the game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Toronto Maple Leafs, Joffrey Lupul scored one of the most impressive game-winning goals you're ever going to see:


Lupul did it all himself on this one, taking the puck almost the entire length of the ice, brushing off Carolina defenders and exploiting a bad line change by the Hurricanes to tuck the puck past goaltender Justin Peters.

Lupul has been red-hot lately. This goal was his seventh in the last five games.

Toronto added two more goals in the final period to win the game 6-3, but it was Lupul's that broke the 3-3 tie and ended up being the difference-maker for the Maple Leafs.

Here's your celebration GIF forever, Leafs fans:
