Bittersweet night for Pavel Zacha.

The New Jersey Devils forward celebrated his 24th birthday on Tuesday with a 5-3 loss against the Buffalo Sabres. The Devils may not have been able to win for Zacha, but at least he was able to treat himself with two points.

Prior to the loss, Zacha put the Devils up 3-2 with the craziest goal. In the middle of the second, Bratt found Zacha backdoor and he shot it upstairs while SITTING DOWN.

A birthday special, one might say.

Nothing fires us up more than when hockey players score the coolest goals.

Happy Birthday, Pavel!
