Pierre-Marc Bouchard wins Goal of the Week (February 21-27)

Every week, Pro Hockey Talk will ask our readers to choose the best goal and save of that seven-day period. Sometimes there might not be seven nominees, whether that be because there weren’t enough great clips or one person received multiple awards. Either way, readers ultimately get to choose each week’s lucky winners.

Concussions are a legitimate problem in hockey just like most sports, there’s not much debate about that.

Yet amid the hysteria regarding Sidney Crosby’s issues, it’s important to note that for every Marc Savard disaster, there’s a recovery story such as that of Patrice Bergeron or Pierre-Marc Bouchard.

That doesn’t mean that either of those shifty centers are out of the woods for good, but it shows that it’s far from impossible to play at or around previous levels after a concussion. As you can see from the video clip at the bottom of this post, “PMB” is back in a big way for the Minnesota Wild.

Here is the poll that Bouchard dominated.
