Tomas Hertl isn't the only player who can score a goal going between his legs in an NHL game. Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno pulled it off himself on Tuesday night.

In the second period of a scoreless game, the Blue Jackets forced a turnover in the offensive zone on the strength of a good forecheck and the puck wound up on Foligno's stick right in front of the crease. He was running out of real estate on the far side so he just put it between his legs and flipped the puck over Lightning goalie Ben Bishop oh so deftly.

Foligno didn't do it on a full-speed breakaway like Hertl did earlier this season but there's still no taking away from Foligno's move. He was in tight and had to get creative. Creativity can turn out so nice sometimes.
