In this edition of the GOTW: some beauty sauce, a rarely seen 5-on-1, some nice moves on a partial breakaway, a nifty bit of tic-tac-toe action and some filthy between the legs dangles!
5. Matt Duchene
Injuries have limited Colorado’s Matt Duchene this season, but before his latest bout with the injury bug he managed to convert on this saucer feed from teammate Paul Stastny for a beauty goal!
4. Bryan Little
The Winnipeg Jets beat the Florida Panthers 7-0 last week, which included something I don’t recall ever seeing in the past – an even-strength 5-on-1 rush! Bryan Little finished off this nice bit of passing to make it a 4-0 game.
3. Evander Kane
If a team scores seven goals in a game, there are bound to be a couple of gems in there – you’ve seen one, now check out this slick move by Winnipeg’s Evander Kane!
2. Zach Parise
New Jersey Devils forward Zach Parise is starting to heat up as the playoffs approach, which is good news if that’s your team! Check out this passing play started by Patrik Elias and finished by Parise. Beauty!
1. Loui Eriksson
Checking in at number one this week is Dallas Stars forward Loui Eriksson, who made Alex Tanguay look silly by putting the puck between his skates and then sniping with a backhand shot for the shorthanded goal!
What the Puck?
This week’s WTP moment comes to us from Montreal, where Erik Cole learned that just because a guy is your teammate, it doesn’t mean he won’t nail you!
That one looked like it hurt!
