Tomas Hertl isn't the only guy who can score with a shot between his legs, that Thomas Vanek isn't too bad either.

In the first period of the Sabres' game on Thursday night, Vanek got the Sabres on the board with a twist on Hertl's move, taking a pass and deflecting it in from between his legs. The finish was indeed superb and takes a lot of skill, but let's not overlook the pass from Steve Ott to set up the goal. He was essentially blind in the corner and threw it right to Vanek's stick in the crease. Impressive play all around.

I wonder if Vanek was disrespecting the game, too.
