For Matthew Tkachuk, this did not look like a coincidence.

For the second time this season, the Calgary Flames forward scored an amazing, between-the-legs goal and made it look easy in the process.

Tkachuk took pass from Noah Hanifin just inside the left circle, took his time and made his move and went top shelf from between his legs to beat San Jose Sharks goalie Aaron Dell just 84 seconds in to the third period.

Now, this one may not have been an overtime winner like the previous one he scored on Halloween, but it was just as pretty.

It's only a matter of time before Tkachuk ends up with a between-the-legs hat trick. After all, the old sports saying goes "once is chance, twice is coincidence, three times is skill," but it seems pretty evident after the second time this move will continue to be in Tkachuk's repertoire.
