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.

Wednesday night featured a few surprising occurrences around the NHL. Carey Price failed to show up and was pulled in the Canadiens game in Carolina. The Detroit Red Wings gave up a 10 spot at home against the St. Louis Blues. But even more surprising, our goal of the night wasn’t one of the Blues’ 10 goals. Trust us, we had plenty to choose from; but none of them matched Michael Cammalleri’s goal in a losing effort. While in tight against Cam Ward, Cammalleri made about 6 moves to work the puck around Ward and finally into the back of the net. The good thing was it was the prettiest goal of the night. The bad thing was each one of those moves needed to count as its own individual goal if the Habs wanted to compete with the Hurricanes on Wednesday.
