Killing

zero derivation; verb
To do extremely well, to perform exceedingly well in a certain instance
 
Example: "I played so well the other day, I was really killing it." The usage of this phrase suggests that it metaphorically connects 'kill' with performance. Perhaps from the phrase 'to make the kill', an idiom meaning to execute an action or plan successfully, a metaphor on hunting.
