    Come for the stunning clip of Derek Boogaard scoring his first goal since 2007. Stay for the great look on Bruce Boudreau’s face.

    All right so there weren’t a lot of choices to be made for goal of the night, so when in doubt go for the overtime game-winning goal when there is one. Henrik Zetterberg’s tip-in of a Ruslan Salei shot past Coyotes goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is good enough to be the top goal of the night.

  3. Goal of the Night: Paul Mara (November 7)

    Paul Mara scored the game-winner with only two seconds left to help the Ducks beat the Predators.

  4. Goal of the night: Cal Clutterbuck slams and stuns the Blue Jackets

    It’s rare when a grinder specialist like Cal Clutterbuck gets a chance to have goal of the night, but when he (and his magnificent Movember mustache) put his main skill of hitting opponents into the act to help score goals, we’re sold. Clutterbuck’s monster hit on Jakub Voracek helped loosen the Blue Jackets defense up…

  5. Goal of the Night – David Booth (November 5)

    While the actual shot to score wasn’t that amazing, the lead-up to it was pretty impressive. David Booth scored the best of the Florida Panthers’ seven goals (and 11 overall in that game) by passing to himself. (They better add that move to NHL ’12 … unless that move is already in NHL ’11 and…

  6. Goal of the night: Mike Richards’ slam dunk off Claude Giroux’s sick pass

    While the Rangers were busy rolling over dead all night, the Flyers were more than happy to go wild at their expense. Doing their job to do things crazy was the combo of Claude Giroux and Mike Richards to rip one past Henrik Lundqvist. This one is equally impressive for both Giroux’s 180-degree spin to…

  7. Goal of the Night – Loui Eriksson (November 3)

    It seems like Loui Eriksson has been watching Mike Ribeiro during shootouts the last few years. The underrated winger scored a great penalty shot goal during the Stars’ 5-2 thrashing of the Pittsburgh Penguins last night, using a move that reminded me of the one that Ribeiro perfected a few years back to frustrate many…

  8. Goal of the night: Brassard and Voracek team up to scorch Montreal

    We’ve lauded Carey Price enough here lately for his efforts in a losing game, but someone had to score on him, right? Well, three different Blue Jackets did in their 3-0 win over Montreal and the goal that Jakub Voracek and Derick Brassard teamed up on was a true beauty. What starts with Voracek’s rush…

    Which goal was better: Martin St. Louis speeding past the Penguins’ D and roofing it for Tampa Bay or Bryan Little deking his way through the Rangers blue line to score for Atlanta?

    There were a nice amount of gorgeous goals last night, but Magnus Paajarvi took the cake. Read my glowing remarks about this sensational score by clicking “Read More.”

  11. Goal of the night: Andrei Kostitsyn’s overtime game-winner

    Andrei Kostitsyn’s Montreal Canadiens career has been, to this point, a bit controversial and over-dramatic. So far this year, however, everything has been forgiven. Kostitsyn’s fifth goal of the year last night sent the Montreal fans home abundantly happy and excited to have another goal scoring threat as he scored in overtime beating Coyotes goaltender…

    To celebrate the best moments of each week, we’ll put up a poll to see which goal/save/whatever was the most amazing of a given seven days. We might not always have one per day and sometimes there will be more than seven to choose from, but all you need to do is vote for your…

  13. Goal of the Night – October 24 (Cody Franson)

    OK, I know that he’s talented and wears No. 4 … but take it easy with the Bobby Orr comparisons. Now that I set that aside, this is still a silky smooth goal by Nashville Predators defenseman Cody Franson. He wasn’t the only Predators defenseman who scored a nice goal last night, either, as Shea…

  15. Goals of the night: Lee Stempniak’s hat trick

    Oct 22, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    While there may not have been too many people there to see it, the highlights of the goals of the night belong to Phoenix’s Lee Stempniak for bagging a hat trick in the Coyotes 4-2 win over the Kings. It was Stempniak’s first career hat trick and we’ll not hear anything about the third goal…

  16. Goal of the Night – October 20 (Teemu Selanne)

    Comments Off

    While there were nice goals from some rookies (including Carolina’s Jeff Skinner and a game winner from Andrei Loktionov of Los Angeles) and a nice shootout goal or two, when in doubt, go with the biggest milestone. That would be goal number 609 for “The Finnish Flash,” Teemu Selanne. While his great individual effort couldn’t…

  17. Goal of the night: Sedin twins connect on a beauty

    SO it was a bad night for the Canucks losing to the Minnesota Wild 6-2, but they at least had a lead for a little while as Henrik Sedin connected with his brother Daniel on this beauty of a pass to put the Canucks up 1-0 less than a minute into the game. The lead…

  18. Goal(s) of the Night: October 18 (Marian Hossa)

    Oct 19, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    There might not be a player in the NHL who is on a hotter streak right now than Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa (although his teammate Patrick Sharp might have a good argument with his three consecutive game winning goals). Chicago found themselves down 2-0 midway through the third period but Hossa scored two gorgeous…

  19. Goal of the Night: October 16 (Brent Burns)

    Oct 17, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    People throw around “Goal of the Year” praise almost like how people call a film that was released in January the movie of the year, but they might just be onto something with this stunning goal by Minnesota Wild defenseman Brent Burns. Check it out after the jump.

  20. Goal of the night: Shawn Matthias ices the Flames

    Oct 15, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Our goal of the night comes from last night’s mostly lackluster tilt between the Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers. Panthers young forward Shawn Matthias makes the most of his open-ice break with Rostislav Olesz and places a perfect shot over the shoulder of Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff. Matthias’ goal came in the third period and…
