If people didn’t know beforehand about the fishing line, I dare say they’d think that there was some sorcery afoot. Still, that was a pretty clever trick by Vladimir Tarasenko of Team Sergei Fedorov in the KHL Skills Competition. Totally unfair, but clever nonetheless.

That's because Vladimir Tarasenko had one of the most remarkable shootout goals I've ever seen.Skating towards the net Tarasenko seems to lose control of the puck momentarily, with it slipping away from...
