Goal-scorers get all the love in hockey but sometimes the setup man can steal the spotlight. On Wednesday night, Clarke MacArthur stole the spotlight from Kyle Turris.

In the opening minutes of their game at home against Minnesota, the Senators forward was leading a 2-on-1 rush with Turris streaking through the slot. With defensemen Ryan Suter taking away the passing lane as is customary, MacArthur had to get creative. Instead of stopping on a dime and allowing the back-checkers to come back into the play, he just decided to play the puck behind him and in between his legs.

The result was a pass right onto Turris' stick and an eventual goal, one very nice goal thanks to the assist.

Let's enjoy that again, in GIF form (via @CJZero):

Who says passing can't get you the glory? Certainly not MacArthur.
