Tomas Hertl's 4th goal against the Rangers is Mindblowingly Awesome

I used to hate hot-diggity-dog-diggity moves like this, until I realized that today's NHL'ers are actually good enough to make these moves work as bona fide goal-scoring plays.

What 19-year-old Tomas Hertl did against the New York Rangers and poor, poor Martin Biron for his 4th goal of the game and 6th of the season was just plain ridiculous. We already had our top three goals of Tuesday's action posted before this humdinger sent the Shark Tank crowd into a frenzy. But Hertl's between-the-leg beauty, pulled off at warp speed, makes all of our top three look like bantam hockey.

Have a look:

Hertl is now the youngest NHLer to score four in a game since 1988 and the first Shark to ever score five--let alone six--in his first two career games. In short, Watch out for this kid...
