Capitals forward Jakub Vrana scored his third goal of the World Championship against Latvia on Thursday.
After falling behind 2-0, the Czech Republic scored four unanswered goals in the second period, which included Vrana’s tally with 1:20 remaining in the stanza.
V showed off some great hand-eye coordination on the goal.
After Jakub Voracek scored to give the Czechs their first lead of the game, Vrana scored 1:02 later with a great individual play. After some good zone time, Radko Gudas unleashed a shot from the point, which was blocked by teammate Radek Faksa in front of the net. Vrana, hiding out along the corner boards, noticed the puck in Faksa’s skates and then the magic happened.
Vrana toe-dragged the puck and scored as he was falling to the ice.
Vrana got up, stared at some Czech Republic fans in the stands, and then got mobbed by his teammates.
