The prettiest goal you'll see all year came from the AHL playoffs

You probably won't find a better goal this season.

Brian Gibbons made a name for himself in the Stanley Cup playoffs with the Pittsburgh Penguins when he used his speed to score a couple of goals in the first round and made an impact on the penalty kill. Now that the Penguins have been eliminated, he's back down in the American Hockey League where he spent half of the season playing for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

On Wednesday, the AHL Penguins picked up a 5-4 win in Game 7 of their playoff series against the Providence Bruins and it was there that Gibbons scored one of the most incredible goals you will see all season. From anybody. At any level.

Now that's a goal. The puck control. The ability to stay onside before driving to the net. And the way he just skated circles around everybody else on the ice.
