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.
Last week, the Vancouver Canucks “made like a video game” for a Goal of the Night-worthy bit of passing. Tuesday night would have been a good example of the broken sticks innovation in NHL ’11, as Ryan Kesler was forced to go to the team’s bench and retrieve another stick in the middle of play.
Little did Kesler know that he would soon use that replacement stick to set up a Mikael Samuelsson goal. It’s quite reasonable that he pointed to the Canucks bench after that tally, as the league’s top club produced another team-oriented Goal of the Night winner. Enjoy the odd clip below.
