Goal of the Night – Pavel Datsyuk (February 17)

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.

Joe Pavelski had a nice short-handed goal against the Capitals and Andrew Ladd had a snipe against the Coyotes, but neither could complete with Pavel Datsyuk in open ice.

Backhand saucer pass? Check.

Sick finish? Check.
