"The Forsberg" is the stuff of hockey legend and somehow two players pulled the move off in as many nights during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Peter Forsberg's signature maneuver, a one-handed slip of the puck around the opposing goaltender, is an incredible show of skill. He managed it on more than one occasion, including in the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway against Russia in the gold medal game.

It's popped up among the current crop of NHL at the rate of about once per season the last few years, but twice in two nights is another story.

Montreal Canadiens forward Alexander Radulov on Sunday and Ottawa Senators forward Mike Hoffman on Monday each Forsberged their way to a goal against New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist and Boston Bruins goalie Tuuka Rask, respectively. 

Just goes to show a move that slick can beat even the best of the best.
