Alex Burmistrov's game-winning goal was almost as good as his coach's reaction

#PaulMauriceFace is now a thing.

The Toronto Maple Leafs' hopes of defeating a second Central Division team in as many games died with a sweet goal by Winnipeg Jets forward Alexander Burmistrov. But out of those ashes was born a coach's facial expression for the ages.

With the game tied at 2-2 late in the third period, Burmistrov was champing at the bit in the penalty box for his penalty to be served. The second he got out of the box, he gathered a loose puck and started one of the best game-winning goals of the NHL season.

That should've been the highlight of the game. But then Jets coach Paul Maurice made this amazing expression.

An instant classic.
