Erik Karlsson and Mike Hoffman made sweet, sweet hockey love in Game 3, and the world (except for Boston) is a better place because of it.

During the first period of Monday's tilt with the series tied at 1-1 and the game scoreless, Karlsson set up at his own goalline, before airmailing one of the most perfect feeds you'll ever see—sending a saucer pass 10 feet in the air and landing it right on the stick of Mike Hoffman just inside the Bruins' blueline.

Of course, as with any hookup session (well most, anyway), it takes two partners to make it work. As Hoffman busted in all alone on Tuukka Rask, he held up his end of the relationship by pulling out a savage one-handed move and, literally, sliding one past the Bruins goalie. The tally put the Sens up 1-0 and—despite the Bruins erasing a 3-0 lead to take the game to overtime—ended up helping the Senators secure a big one-goal victory in Beantown to regain home-ice advantage and go up 2-1 in the series.

The Hockey Night in Canada panel broke down the pass, showing just how high, long, accurate, and downright perfect Karlsson's insane feed was. The perennial Norris Trophy candidate reached a peak height of 10 feet in the air with the pass while sailing the biscuit over 116 feet and landing it perfectly flat on the blade of Hoffman's stick.

That wasn't all the duo contributed to their team's victory on Monday, as Hoffman scored his second of the night in the second frame to put the Sens up 3-0, while Karlsson, the wizard that he is, used his incredible skating ability to evade a Bruins forechecker before sending a perfect pass to Bobby Ryan who finished a give-and-go with Kyle Turris to win it in overtime for Ottawa.

So far in the series, Karlsson and Hoffman have combined for two goals, four assists, six points, and one beautiful hook up.
