From MSHK Prievidza of the second division IN the Slovakian professional hockey league, we bring you one of the better penalty shootout goals you'll probably ever see.

When awarded a penalty during an exhibition game, Radoslav Bural decided to get a little creative. As Bural skated toward the net with tremendous pace, he literally laid out on his stomach just before reaching the crease and faked out the goalie by tapping the puck with his left hand back to his stick... which tapped the puck into the back of the net.

The shot is indeed legal, at least according to the NHL's official rules surrounding penalty shots.

From a sheer fanciness perspective, we're not sure that this goal beats out the one notched by Islanders rookie Ryan Strome this summer, but we must give Bural his due for the sheer fortitude it must have taken to even attempt this shot.

Hat tip to Puck Daddy for the find!
