Joe Thornton's Wrap-Around Bounces off Luongo's Back into Net

If you wanted proof that Joe Thornton has some of the softest hands in the NHL, just watch how Jumboe Joe feathers this dump in along the wall, off a the kick plate on the end boards, and off of a very surprised Roberto Luongo and into the net.

Talk about a puck with eyes...

Thornton, no doubt, will say he planned it down to the last, strange bounce. The goal gave the Sharks a 1-0 lead in the first, but since then the Canucks have responded and 4-2 with less than ten minutes left in the third.
