Somehow, Nino Niederreiter Sneaks the Backhand Past Pavelec

Minnesota Wild's Nino Niederreiter made this superhuman play look easy during the first period of the Wild's 4-3 overtime victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday. The goal was the 22-year-old's team-leading eighth marker of the season, and it put the Swiss native's athleticism on full display as somehow while falling over the goaltender's pads, and behind the goal line, AND ON ONE SKATE!!!, Nedierreiter has the presence and the hands to finagle the puck onto the backand and slide it into the net. Slick stuff from the kid.
