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.
The New York Rangers scored two goals in 12 seconds to blow the game open against the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. Mats Zuccarello scored a nice goal about 6 minutes into the 2nd period, but it was the second goal of the two goal explosion that was our winner. Off the ensuing faceoff, Anisimov received a pass, showed power to get to the front of the net, and showed off some sweet hands as he buried the puck behind Craig Anderson. It’s flashes like these that make Rangers fans giddy for the future.
(Note: Anisimov goal starts at 0:33)

Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
