Winnipeg Jets forward Kyle Connor scored a ridiculous power play goal in spectacular fashion, reminiscent of the one Calgary Flames forward just scored four days ago.

One of Tkachuk’s two and Barzal’s came off rebounds while Milano’s was a breakaway. In Tkachuk’s most recent he was all alone on the left side.

Connor’s skillful shot was the latest in what seems to have become a growing trend.
