Thomas Vanek goes between the legs on a dangle for a sweet goal

Silky smooth.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Thomas Vanek certainly has some sweet hands. Dangles between the legs are hard to pull off in hockey, but Vanek puts down a beauty for his second goal of the night against the Winnipeg Jets.

Even in GIF form, Vanek's movements are just so damn smooth. He doesn't lose a step as he dances around defenseman Paul Postma and the transition from backhand to forehand before he puts the puck top shelf is flawless. It's a gorgeous Minnesota goal, and certainly one of the best the NHL has seen this season.
