Video: Joe Thornton pulls off beautiful toe-drag shootout goal

16 Comments

The San Jose Sharks got the win over the Chicago Blackhawks, with a little help from Joe Thornton and a stunning toe-drag move on Corey Crawford in the shootout.

The Sharks outlasted the Blackhawks by a final score of 2-1. The offence has become something of a concern for the Sharks recently, and that continued Saturday, with only one goal in regulation time against Chicago. Perhaps a small confidence booster: the Sharks did score three times in the skills competition, capped off by Thornton’s beauty.

Now, you’ve probably seen this move done before – by Pavel Datsyuk.
