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.
Most hockey fans are familiar with the term “distinct kicking motion.” But when a player uses a distinct kicking motion to beat his own goaltender, there is no rule to help bail him out. Ryan Suter did the dirty work for Corey Perry’s 42nd goal of the season while doing something very few opponents have been able to figure out this season—how to beat Pekka Rinne. Apparently, regular shots are unable to beat Rinne at this point in the season so Suter had to pull out his best Landon Donovan impression to get a puck past his own netminder. Of course, it’s all fun and games because the Predators managed to hold on to their lead for the 5-4 victory. Otherwise, this could have been embarrassing.
