See, It's Not that Hard to Score in the NHL

This goal by Vancouver's Jannik Hansen is living proof: You don't have to be good at all to score an NHL. You just have to be lucky. Problem is, you have to be incredibly good to ever get to a position where you have the privilege of pulling on an NHL sweater. So the dream ends here for most of us weekend warriors, sadly. But for Hansen, the dream LIVES. His 15th goal of the season, scored at 15:16 of the second period and assisted by Chris Tanev and Henrik Sedin could end up being the game winner.

Vancouver leads the Coyotes 2-1 after two in a battle of two teams desperate for playoff points. Both are tied with 54 at the moment, and outside of the Western Conference playoff picture looking in.
