It’s been a great start to the 2013-2014 season; plenty of highlight reel goals already!
These are my favorite goals of the week:
10. Radek Dvorak : 10/4/13
Radek Dvorak was a late signing by the Carolina Hurricane but he quickly contributed with a sneak redirect 14 minutes into his first game! No chance for Jimmy Howard. A great heads up play by the veteran.
9. Ryan O’Reilly: 10/2/13
8. Connor Carrick: 10/3/13
7. Jonas Brodin: 10/3/13
Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin doesn’t look like he will be having a sophomore slump. With 35 seconds left on the power play, Brodin sneak behind everyone on Los Angles and riffles one past Jonathan Quick.
6. Jamie McGinn: 10/2/13
Back to Colorado for number six with Jamie McGinn‘s goal beautifully set up by Nathan MacKinnon. After McGinn dumps the puck in, Mackinnon beats Anaheim’s defensemen there and feeds McGinn with a sweet back-hand pass. First career point for MacKinnon.
5. Mikael Samuelsson: 10/2/13
4. Pavel Datsyuk: 10/2/13
Sticking with the same game for Pavel Datsyuk‘s game winning goal. I’m a sucker for nifty back hands and Datsyuk has one of the most deadly and this goal is a prime example. So deceptive and so beautiful; no one has a back hand like Datsyuk.
3. Patrik Berglund
(Goal is at 2:20 mark)
St. Louis Blues put the hurt on the Florida Panthers on October fifth with a seven goal affair, but it was Patrik Berglund that had the highlight reel goal. He was set up with an open net with a fake shot pass from Vladimir Tarasenko.
2. Matt Moulson: 10/5/13
Matt Moulson may have scored the goal, but it’s the beautiful no look feed from John Tavares that makes it happen. Is there anything this young man can not do? Impressive feed and it was a nice finish by Moulson.
1.Daniel Sedin: 10/5/13
It must be nice to play professional hockey with your twin brother. Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin make it look easy. Don’t believe me? Just watch this beautiful goal. Even as a Blackhawks fan, I have to give it up when I see some magic like this happen.
What do you think? Do you agree with my choices or is there another goal that should have been in the top ten? Also I would like to do this every week, but is ten too many? Should I go down to five or stick with ten? Please let me know!
