Kris Versteeg now has seven goals on the season, but it will be pretty hard for any future tallies to measure up to the one he scored against Pittsburgh last night. The Carolina Hurricanes right winger got several crazy bounces in what can only be described as a magic pinball goal:

Off Sidney Crosby's stick, off the end boards, dropping onto goalie Marc-Andre Fleury's back and then in past the startled netminder. Just like Versteeg drew it up, eh?

The goal was a crucial one, too, as the Canes needed overtime to dispose of the Penguins 3-2. Jeff Skinner had the clincher.
