In Game 4, Nazem Kadri scores an incredible vanishing overtime winner for the Avalanche

When he scored one of the Stanley Cup Final’s most odd goals, Colorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri emerged as the game’s hero.

Just refer to Nazem Kadri as “The Magician” from now on. Because he made the selection go away and won Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, he did this.

On Wednesday night, the Avalanche and the Lightning went into overtime tied at 2-2. Kadri, playing in his first game of the series after recovering from thumb surgery, scored to end the game.

However, it took a few seconds for anyone—not even Kadri himself—to recognize that it was even a goal. Why? because the puck slipped under the crossbar and into the goal’s top netting.

Kadri and his teammates searched for the rebound following Kadri’s game-winning shot. Andrei Vasilevskiy, the goalie for the Lightning, attempted in vain to smother the nonexistent puck. The referees noticed that the puck was still in the air before the Avs realized they should be celebrating their win.

It was a significant occasion for Kadri, who had been sidelined since suffering an injury in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals matchup with the Edmonton Oilers. He returned healthy just in time to help Colorado win the Stanley Cup by one game.

The Avalanche scored another huge overtime goal in this series, as they also won Game 1 by sudden death.

The Avs will have the opportunity to win the Cup on their home rink in Game 5 on Friday when it is played back in Colorado.
