Despite being on track to miss the playoffs for the first time in 26 seasons, there are some silver linings to the disappointing 2016-17 campaign for the Red Wings. Among those is the speedy Andreas Athanasiou, who potted his 17th goal of the season on Sunday in the team’s 3-2 overtime win at home against Minnesota.

Watch this sparkling play (all around) from Athanasiou in the extra session, grabbing a long pass from Gus Nyquist and racing ahead before completely fooling Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk.
