Tyler Ennis’ Epic Goal is the NHL’s Answer to the Odell Beckham Catch

When Odell Beckham Jr. went up to catch an impossible ball predictably chucked nowhere near him by chronically inept Eli Manning, the gauntlet was pretty much thrown down to the rest of the sports world: top that.

Less than a week later, Buffalo’s Tyler Ennis found himself in a similarly impossible situation after Montreal defenseman Alexei Emelin shoved him past the goal, sending him stumbling over the goalie’s pads.

Barely holding his balance before toppling over, Ennis backhanded a no-look goal right past Carey Price to put the Sabres up like he was in a damn Mighty Ducks movie.

Just watch it. Watch it over and over again.
