Generally when we pick our goal of the night we look for instances where a ridiculous set of dekes took place to fake a goalie out of their jock. Other times it’ll be when someone who never gets on the score sheet manages to do so in a big way. Something we don’t reward nearly enough is the raw, unadulterated power of a slap shot. Thankfully we can do that this morning as Phoenix’s Scottie Upshall got the chance to unleash the beast and rip a Titanic slap shot by helpless Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff.
