5. Pavel Datsyuk versus the Calgary Flames
Datsyuk does his patented left to right deke (avoiding a hit) while sliding the puck through the defenders legs, then goes top shelf on goaltender Miika Kiprusoff. It happened so fast, Miika did not even know if the puck went in.
4. Ilya Kovalchuk versus the Carolina Hurricanes
Kovalchuk takes it the length of the ice all while skating through about three defenders before sniping out the top right corner of the net for a goal. Vintage Kovalchuk goal.
3. Rick Nash versus the St. Louis Blues
Nash gets a perfect rebound from a slap shot, and than shoots the puck between his legs over the goaltender with barely any room to work with.
2. Jonathan Toews versus the Colorado Avalanche
Toews gets a beautiful pass while in stride than skates through a couple defenders so fast the goalie did not have time to anticipate the move to his right side leaving 90 percent of the net wide open for an easy goal. This looks like child’s play for the 19 year old child himself.
1. Rick Nash versus the Phoenix Coyotes
Eye candy goal of the year. Rick Nash dekes out two Coyotes defenders while they try to swat at him like a fly. He then dashes to his left nearly avoiding a poke check from the goaltender then shoots in a wide open net for the goal.
