Andrei Svechnikov of Carolina Hurricanes scores his second goal of the season

It happened again.

On Tuesday night, Andrei Svechnikov did just about anything else in NHL history when he scored a “lacrosse-style” goal behind the Carolina Hurricanes.

The previous snapshot of such a goal? October 29, by Svechnikov.

With Carolina visiting the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday, a scrambled-over competition required a bit of spark to give one of the teams enough advantage to take control of the game.

Enter Svechnikov.

With the game tied 2-2 in the middle of the second period, Svechnikov pooled the puk along the boards and headed behind the Winnipeg net. Sitting right behind Jet netminder Connor Hellebuyck, 19-year-old Svechnikov took the mouse on his stick and placed it on Hellebuyck’s right shoulder.

It was a close copy of Svenovic’s goal scoring the Calgary Flames and on Tuesday he served as a focal point for his team, as the Blues scored four goals in a 6-3 final win with the teenager’s jaw – marking the catalyst.
