    Bet you didn’t think the goal of the night would come out of the most boring game of the night, did you?

    It wasn’t the best goal of the night, but Martin Havlat’s tally is worth a look. The video’s available after the jump.

    There were some great goals on Friday, but Jamie Benn’s shorthanded score tops them all.

  10. Goal of the night: Taylor Hall’s game-winning goal a thing of beauty

    Taylor Hall

    Edmonton’s Taylor Hall shows a good reason why he was the #1 overall selection in 2010 with his sweet third period goal that gave the Oilers the lead and the win over Colorado.

  11. Goal of the night: enforcer Jody Shelley dekes and scores

    Nov 25, 2010, 10:57 AM EDT

    Jody Shelley, Niklas Backstrom

    We’ve got a major soft spot for when an enforcer gets a goal. When the enforcer dekes and scores? You better believe it’s the goal of the night.

  12. Goal of the Night – Lee Stempniak (November 23)

    When you think of the skilled scorers on the Flyers roster, your mind likely floats to names like Daniel Briere, Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, or Claude Giroux. Those are all the names that would likely rush to your mind if you were to think about a player on the Flyers roster that would produce a…

    In a game that featured 15 goals in all, you’d think this would make for a game with a likely selection for the goal of the night. You’d be right because in the wild first period that saw the Flyers and Lightning combine for nine goals in all, the goal of the night comes from…

    While the game started off ugly for the Maple Leafs, their roaring comeback thanks to success on the power play made all the bad things, including an eight-game losing streak, go away for the night. Mikhail Grabovsky’s second period goal past Predators netminder Pekka Rinne tied the game at the time and dazzled the Toronto…

    A great connection between Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan highlights a Gordie Howe hat trick for Callahan.

  21. Goal of the night: Ovechkin to Semin make one hell of a pairing

    The way the Capitals’ Alexander Ovechkin and Alex Semin have been teaming up this year is the sort of thing that gets Capitals fans dreaming of the Stanley Cup. While you might assume that Semin would be feeding Ovechkin passes for goals, the reality is that it’s been exactly the opposite this year with Ovechkin…

  22. Goal of the Night: Thomas Vanek (November 13)

    Every once in a while, a hockey player scores a goal that would have forced me to chuck a controller if it happened in a video game. Thomas Vanek’s beauty would probably fit into that category. The talented (if irresponsibly paid) sniper made the Washington Capitals look silly on this overtime game-winning goal. Vanek’s goal…

    Generally when we pick our goal of the night we look for instances where a ridiculous set of dekes took place to fake a goalie out of their jock. Other times it’ll be when someone who never gets on the score sheet manages to do so in a big way. Something we don’t reward nearly…

    It might take you a few replays to realize how impressive Mike Knuble’s goal was last night. The man just knows how to score goals, folks.

  25. Goal of the night – Shawn Thornton’s stunner stops the Penguins

    The Boston Bruins  had tied the game in the third at 4-4 and the Pens were reeling so of course it would be enforcer Shawn Thornton that would score the dagger goal that would put the Bruins ahead for good, right? It’s only logical. Thornton’s goal gave the Bruins the lead in a game they…
