Remembering Mikael Granlund’s ‘lacrosse-style’ goal vs. Russia

Imagine opening the scoring in a tournament semi-final with a goal like this. That’s exactly what Mikael Granlund did for Finland against Russia at the 2011 IIHF World Championships. What a Finnish! *ahem*

Fun fact: After the goal, Finnish Hockey Mafia released a song called “Taivas varjele!” and reached #2 in the Finnish Singles Chart as well as topping the chart for most Finnish Singles downloads that week.
