Bruins rookie right winger Seth Griffith scored a goal against the New Jersey Devils Monday he'll never be able to reproduce again no matter how many more years he plays in the NHL. That's why it's a surefire goal-of-the-year candidate.

After blocking a shot near Boston's blueline late in the second period, Griffith chases the puck down the center of the ice, splits and fights off Devils defensemen Marek Zidlicky and Bryce Salvador, spins 180 degrees so that his back is to New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider, then bats the puck between his legs and through Schneider's legs to score his fourth goal of the year and give the Bruins a 3-2 advantage:

Granted, it was a shot Schneider probably should have stopped, but the level of co-ordination a player needs simply to attempt it at full skating speed is astonishing. When the regular season ends, you'll be seeing this video again. And probably for many years to come after that.
