Rangers center Mika Zibanejad pulled off an amazing pass during New York’s 4-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers that many described as the latest addition of ‘Mika Magic’.
Zibanejad picked up an assist on the first goal of the game when he tapped a no-look pass between his legs and backwards to teammate Blake Wheeler to score the goal.
The jaw-dropping pass was not Zibanejad’s only highlight from the game as he went on to record a goal during a power play in the third period as the Rangers attempted to come back from a 4-1 deficit.
Despite trailing for most of the game Edmonton was able to score four consecutive goals early on in the third period to take the lead.
New York was able to score a second goal in their comeback effort when Will Cuylle scored an unassisted goal but they ran out of time in their pursuit of a comeback.

It is the third time in franchise history Edmonton has won by mounting third-period comebacks on consecutive days.

Derek Ryan won a faceoff to set up Kane’s go-ahead goal just 70 seconds later.
Evander Kane immediately sent a shot at Quick, who tried shoving the puck out of the crease with his stick before Kane pounced on the rebound.

Warren Foegele extended the lead to 3-1 at the 6:36 mark after taking a drop pass from McLeod, weaving into the slot and beating Quick.
Foegele and McLeod teamed up on the final goal with 10:18 left. The duo mounted a 2-on-1 in which Foegele’s shot bounced into and out of the crease. Foegele retrieved the loose puck and fed McLeod, who scored from point blank range.
Stuart Skinner made 31 saves for the Oilers, who have won two straight following a three-game losing streak.
