Mike Amadio and Adrian Kempe are taking us inside their goal-scoring face-off against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Kempe had planned to throw it back to the blue line or put it over to Amadio, but he made a gametime decision and shot the puck on goal.

"My face-off percentage couldn't get any worse anyways," Kempe joked. And good thing he did, because with a clean win, Kempe went five-hole and found the back of the net.

"I couldn't really believe it that it went in right off the draw," Amadio said. "He snapped it in pretty good."

Kempe was equally in shock that the risk paid off - but isn't expecting it to be replicated in the near future

"I dont think I could do it ever again," he said.
