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.
It’s not every day that Wild winger Colton Gillies scores a goal. It’s also not every day that Colton Gillies scores a pretty goal either but the rugged forward was playing in just his seventh game of the year for the Wild and potted his first and only goal of the season with a whirling backhand past Kari Lehtonen. The goal put Minnesota ahead 3-2 in the second period in a game where they went on to beat Dallas 5-3 and end the Stars’ playoff hopes. For the former 2007 first round pick, it’s been a rough go to carve his way into the NHL so getting a highlight like this in what turned out to be the biggest game of the day is pretty special. Well, that is unless you’re a Stars fan. Sorry guys.
