Avangard Omsk winger Nikolai Lemtyugov scored an eye-popping goal against Metallurg Magnitogorsk on Saturday.

Lemtyugov grabbed the puck near the side boards in the offensive zone, eluded one defender, then weaved around another before beating goaltender Vasily Koshechkin and his outstretched glove on the backhand.

It was the 29-year-old's only shot of the game, so he certainly made the most of his opportunity.

Metallurg got the last laugh, though, prevailing 3-2 in a shootout.
