Think I’m done with only one beautiful Draisaitl goal? No. No, I’m not because Leon is a magic man with magic hands that just won’t quit filling the back of the net.

Isn’t it weird how Leon can keep scoring without Connor McDavid, huh? Laziest out-of-the-air/one-handed goals that I’ve ever seen. In another life, you’d have to think that Leon would be some kind of surgeon or rocket scientist or something with silky hands like his. Gord knows there’s magic in those mitts.
