Watch: Wilds' Haula Makes Incredible End-to-End Rush and Scores

Don't know who Erik Haula is (we do realize that most of you probably do)? Then take :25 out of your busy day to watch this amazing play. It's kind of an odyssey, really. First Haula makes a nifty play to poke the puck off the boards and around Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov, then he steals the puck from Aleksander Barkov and splits two defenders (Barkov and Erik Gudbrandson) before warding off a last-ditch stick check from Gudbrandson while depositing the puck over Roberto Luongo's shoulder, off the post and in.

Grit, determination, creativity and skill. All in one end-to-end rush.

It's probably why Haula leads the Wild in plus-minus and now has eleven points in eleven games.
