Goal of the night: Martin St. Louis fires home a beauty

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.

While the Lightning try to keep things going and get into gear for the playoffs, it appears that Martin St. Louis is ready to go after seeing his sneaky snipe on Cam Ward thanks to a pass from Vincent Lecavalier.

Goal of the night: Alexandre Bolduc shows us the perfect backhand

Vancouver Canucks v Atlanta Thrashers

Vancouver’s Alexandre Bolduc isn’t exactly a household name around the NHL, but last night against Atlanta, he made it known to the Thrashers he’s got a little bit of skill. Bolduc’s second period backhanded snipe past Chris Mason was worth writing home about for the young center.

Goals of the Night – Cam Fowler and Teemu Selanne (March 23)

Sorry, Dallas Stars fans, but when it comes to the best goal(s) of Wednesday night, it’s all about your favorite team’s shocking loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Teemu Selanne scored a stunning game-tying goal with just seven seconds remaining in the third period. The Stars seemed like they were in deer in headlights mode as overtime came along, but Bobby Ryan set up Cam Fowler for a beautiful overtime game-winning goal.

Goal of the Night – Olli Jokinen (March 21)

The hockey world enjoys making fun of Olli Jokinen, but he’s been quietly effective since December. The oft-ridiculed center has 41 points in his last 51 games after getting only nine in his first 21 contests. That makes him something of a steal for the Flames, although we’ll have to see if he can keep up this momentum next season (the final year of his two-year, $6 million deal).

Either way, he’s been surprisingly effective for Calgary the last few months. Watch as he gathers a well-placed breakout pass from Cory Sarich and then buries a game-tying goal for the Flames. The Kings eventually won it, but not before Jokinen earned his team a charity point.

Goal of the night: P.K. Subban outworks all of Minnesota

We all know that Montreal’s P.K. Subban plays the game with a certain flash and dash that drives some opposing players and members of the media crazy. As for us, we’re fans of his and for the bad rap he gets some places, the flair he plays with on the ice is welcome and refreshing. His ability to make a sick play on occasion helps out too.

Subban’s hat trick against Minnesota was fun to watch, and not just for the history involved in it either. The trick was the first from a rookie defenseman in Canadiens history, but it was his first goal of the night set things up for what was to come. Subban made everyone on the Wild look like pee-wees including Jose Theodore on the finish as he wheeled all around the zone carrying the puck himself. If you’re looking for a video to not show to kids wondering how to pass the puck, this one qualifies for that too.
