Vancouver Canucks v Phoenix Coyotes

Goal of the Night – Henrik Sedin (March 16)

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.

On a night when the Vancouver Canucks were the first team to clinch a playoff spot, the Sedin twins reminded everyone that they’ll be a duo to be reckoned with in the second season. Usually it’s Henrik making the pretty dish to Daniel for the goal; after all, Henrik is leading the league in assists and Daniel is 2nd in the league in goals. But on this beautiful goal of the night, Daniel flipped the script with a between-the-legs drop pass to his brother for the snipe. It doesn’t really matter who is doing the passing and who is doing the shooting—these guys are good.
