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.
Saturday’s game couldn’t have started any better for the San Jose Sharks—and it couldn’t have started any worse for the Colorado Avalanche. Sharks winger Devin Setoguchi received an outlet pass at the blueline, split three Avalanche defenders and beat Peter Budaj with a quick move to the backhand. As if a goal 6:30 into the game wasn’t enough, Setoguchi blew by newly acquired Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson.
Probably not the type of start Johnson or the Avalanche had in mind. As if that wasn’t enough, Setoguchi buried 2 more goals for his first career hat trick. Way to steal some of the spotlight from Taylor Hall.
