Alexander Radulov, Jamie Benn Connect On Sexy Goal

New, comments

That’s right, it was sexy.

NHL: Arizona Coyotes at Dallas Stars Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

When the Dallas Stars won the services of the top unrestricted free agent right wing in free agency, some fans knew about his goal scoring prowess while with the Montreal Canadiens.

It seems as though his setup abilities may have been overlooked.

He’s been an absolute puckhound for the Dallas Stars so far this season. And while the only goal that he’s managed to score so far for them has been an empty netter, Stars fans probably won’t mind if he continues to do things like this:

The little drop pass he made was well screened, and Scott Darling barely had time to react to the change in direction by Stars captain Jamie Benn’s shot after he took the puck on his stick. It also shows that Radulov is really ratcheting up his chemistry on that top line. You only make this kind of drop pass if you know exactly where your linemates are.

Pretty sexy in our opinion.
