It's been a a whirlwind few weeks for John Scott. From his victory in the NHL All-Star Fan Vote, to his trade from the Arizona Coyotes to the Montreal Canadiens, to the total meltdown from the league office over the Fan Vote and the trade.
But he made the All-Star Weekend must-watch TV for all hockey fans, and in Team Pacific's 3 on 3 game against Team Central, he did what the entire hockey world wanted him to do:

A great moment, with a great celebration to boot.

Here's the whole thing from beginning to end. We could watch this all day.
It's perfect. #NHLAllStarhttps://t.co/jA7AqqScRK— NHL (@NHL) January 31, 2016
Way to go John Scott. A fitting ending to one of the surprising feel-good stories of the season.
UPDATE: It gets even better.

Why yes, that is Patrick Kane that just got leveled by John Scott. They then mock-fought immediately afterwards.
Should have done it, John. pic.twitter.com/XZdua9gM3Q— Kyle (@KyleWIIM) January 31, 2016
