The Colorado Avalanche are off to a fast start against the Nashville Predators in Game 4, thanks to a wacky goal that you rarely see.

Avs forward Andre Burakovsky sniped a shot so hard it literally ripped through the top of the Predators net for a goal. Confusion on the ice followed and play continued for nearly a minute, before the play was reviewed and it was clear Burakovsky had scored to give Colorado a 1-0 lead. You can watch it below:

That is absolutely wild! The Avs are looking to sweep the Predators out of the first-round of the NHL playoffs — and Game 4 is certainly off to a good (and crazy) start.
