No matter who pulls off the lacrosse move in the NHL, there will always and forever be one man who did it first. Not only was Andrei Svechnikov to pull it off, he was the first to do it twice. It had been a while since he successfully pulled off the move in a game, but he reached into his bag of tricks in Beantown late in the season.

Svechnikov's third career lacrosse goal was so smooth that it didn't even look like it went into the net. In a scoreless tie in the second period, Svechnikov swooped around and threw the puck in off the back bar, though no one else seemed to think it was in. Play continued for the next little bit before the horn sounded to confirm that Svechnikov had, in fact, scored. The goal set the tone for the Hurricanes' 4-1 victory, picking up their 50th win of the season in the process.
