Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons pulled off this beauty move on Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nik Kronwall on Tuesday night. Kronwall got caught flat-footed as Girgensons pulled the puck between his legs and blew past Kronwall and buried it. It was Girgensons second goal of the night but it wasn’t enough as the Sabres fell to the Red Wings, 4-2.

Monday was Sabres’ youngin’ Zemgus Girgensons 20th birthday. So after practice, 20 teammates lined up and Girgensons was sent through for 20 spankings – hockey style.
