Adam Oates is the New Jersey Devils assistant coach in charge of the power play, which was 2-for-20 against the New York Rangers heading into Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final. It's entirely possible he will carry around this Ilya Kovalchuk goal in his wallet, showing it to complete strangers and telling them how gorgeous it is.
Watch all five Devils get involved on their second goal of Game 6, with Ruslan Fedotenko in the box for tripping Ryan Carter.
That's some video game [expletive] right there.
For those keeping score at home, it was Adam Henrique to Peter Harrold at the top of the zone as the Devils played the umbrella. Harrold waited out a Derek Stepan blocked-shot attempt and dished to Henrique, who sent a quick pass to David Clarkson in the slot. Rather than shoot, Clarkson dumped down to Dainius Zubrus, who had a wide-open seam in front of the crease. He passed to Kovalchuk who one-timed it past Henrik Lundqvist.
We don't want to say that power-play goal was a thing of beauty, but it was just named Miss New Jersey.
