Teuvo Teravainen, Trevor van Riemsdyk team up for gorgeous tic-tac-toe goal against Canucks

We can't state this enough: this play was perfect and you need to watch it over and over again.

When your team has awesome players, you see awesome plays. This is hardly new for the Chicago Blackhawks. For example, here's a Teuvo Teravainen goal, courtesy in large part thanks to Trevor van Riemsdyk's exemplary passing.

It doesn't get much prettier than this. Van Riemsydk is in the perfect spot, as is Teravainen when van Riemsdyk's perfect pass meets him for the perfect shot. I'm using the word "perfect" so much because that's really the only word for this goal: it was a series of perfect plays that left Ryan Miller completely helpless.

Teravainen's goal, his 13th of the season, gave the Blackhawks a 2-1 lead early in the third on a night they only needed a single point to clinch their eighth consecutive playoff spot.

The Hawks clinched with a 3-2 final, with this goal perhaps being the prettiest moment of it all.
