Justin Fontaine sets up Erik Haula with perfect saucer pass

This was a goal worth waiting for.

Through two periods the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild were playing with all the intensity of an October regular season game, combining for zero goals, only 25 shots, and a bunch of players doing everything in their power to not make a mistake.

Just when it seemed like nobody was going to do anything to generate offense, Minnesota opened the scoring just a couple of minutes into the third period when Justin Fontaine set up Erik Haula for his second goal of the playoffs with one of the most  perfectly placed saucer passes that you're ever going to see.

Just a few minutes later, Mikael Granlund continued the offensive explosion for Minnesota to give the Wild a 2-0 lead.
