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.

If you wanted to go for the most obvious story from last night’s Toronto Maple Leafs’ 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins, it would be the “revenge” of former Bruin Phil Kessel. After all, Kessel scored two goals against his former team after struggling against the Bruins in previous matches.

Yet the true star for Toronto was Mikhail Grabovski. Despite being knocked around by Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara, Grabovski scored two goals (including the game winner). His winner happened to be a very handsome goal, as you can see below.
