Aside from the occasional night off – or the even less common instance when a save or goal isn’t deemed worthy – the gang at PHT will decide which tally or stop is the best of any given night. Once those two winners are determined, we’ll share our reasoning (and most importantly, the video clip for each) in posts for your viewing pleasure.
Everyone struggles here and there, but it’s a testament to a person’s will (and/or sublime talent) when that struggling individual responds to adversity in a big way. Naturally, it’s easier for someone as ludicrously skilled as Gaborik to bounce back big time, but that’s exactly what he did tonight.
This isn’t just a comprehensive achievement award, though, as his first goal was especially brilliant. Maybe Jonas Gustavsson made some mistakes, but Gaborik made him pay like few players could by making some gorgeous dekes around him.
While one of the goals was a bit of a softy, his entire performance is a delight to watch. Check it out below.
