     The number one draft pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, and soon to be rookie of the year, Colorado forward Nathan MacKinnon showed off some fanciness in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

     MacKinnon, at 18 years old, took the puck into the Wild zone straight at Minnesota defenseman Jared Spurgeon, pulled off a little fake, and danced around him, forcing Spurgeon to trip over himself, and watch from the ice as MacKinnon went thin mints and fired a wrister past Ilya Bryzgalov to tie the game.

     His first career playoff goal will certainly be remembered. Feel free to let your jaw drop.
