VIDEO: Nazem Kadri with a beautiful goal on his backhand
Despite rumors surrounding his name, Nazem Kadri has some real skills as he showed the Lightning on Tuesday with a great backhand goal.
For some reason, Maple Leafs centerman Nazem Kadri can ditch the trade rumors surrounding his name, a rather odd development this season. It's especially odd when you see Kadri do things like he did on Tuesday night.
Streaking down the middle of the ice he took an excellent pass from Joffrey Lupul and then proceeded to deke Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman and goalie Ben Bishop with a couple of excellent backhand moves. That was pretty (and poor Hedman, that wasn't too fair).
It was Kadri's second goal of the night and 14th on the season as he's been heating up lately.
