Blake Wheeler holds it. HOLDS IT. HOLDS IT!

Say this for Blake Wheeler: He is a patient man with the puck on his stick.

Here he is scoring an overtime goal for the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night in a 5-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche and leaving a path of destruction behind him.

Just look at the freeze frame just before he released the shot. Total chaos.
