Cale Makar goal tonight: Best I’ve ever seen in 26 years of covering the Avalanche

Twitter is a prime landing spot for hyberbole. In other words, it’s easy to overstate things – and maybe feel a tinge of regret later. I certainly know the feeling well. But I really think that might have been the greatest goal I’ve ever seen in my now 26 1/2 years of covering the Colorado Avalanche, this goal by Cale Makar that won the game in overtime tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.

I have had to watch this play over and over to comprehend it fully:

I just can’t quite believe that goal. I could try and make up all kinds of crap writer metaphors to describe it, but no. Let’s just save this video and watch it anytime we want to compare any goal that might have anywhere NEAR that level of skill here.
