Chris Tanev sparked the Calgary Flames comeback against the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night with a goal on a 122-foot shot from the first pass of the second half

From his own blueline, Tanev attempted a pass on the offensive, which was skipped in front of reigning Vezina Trophy winner Connor Hellebuyck to bring the deficit down to 2-1.The Flames won the game 4-3 in a shootout

“It went through a couple of legs and sticks and obviously took a happy jump,” Tanev explained after the game. “It was definitely not [as I imagined] but I will achieve whatever goal I can

“We’re just glad we won. Obviously we’re playing these guys four of the next five, so getting the first two points against them is huge”

At the beginning of the second period, Chris Tanev picks up the puck on his own blue line from the draw and fires it into the ice, the puck jumps strangely and somehow hits Connor Hellebuyck for the bizarre goal

The goal marked Tanev’s first with the flames after signing as a free agent with the team in the fall. The 31-year-old has two points and is plus 6 in eight games with Calgary

A veteran of 522 NHL games, Tanev spent the first 10 years of his career with the Vancouver Canucks

The Flames, who finished sixth in the North Division with a 4-3-1 record, will face the Jets again on Tuesday evening
