This edition of the Goals of the Week features the top five goals from the week of March 19th – a beauty spin-o-rama, a couple of solid breakaway dekes, some end-to-end action and a poke check gone wrong!
5. Ben Maxwell
He’s only got one goal this season, but it was a beauty! Check out this spin move by Winnipeg’s Ben Maxwell against the Washington Capitals!
4. PA Parenteau
It’s been a tough season for the Toronto Maple Leafs, especially between the pipes, and it’s got a bit to do with guys like PA Parenteau of the NY Islanders. Check out this beauty breakaway goal!
3. Tomas Plekanec
There’s nothing nicer than a beautifully executed breakaway – just ask Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec, who makes Ilya Bryzgalov look silly on this play!
2. Brad Richards
NY Rangers forward Brad Richards checks in at number two on this list with a solid individual effort against the Red Wings, going coast-to-coast for the game-tying goal.
1. Claude Giroux
Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux has become easily one of my most favorite players in the NHL this season, and it’s got a lot to do with his absolutely filthy mitts. Check out this deke and goal against the Caps!
What the Puck?
Adam Burish of the Dallas Stars recently discovered a new way to drop the gloves!
Last week’s GOTW will be up shortly!
