Best Hockey Goals Ever

I decided to put together a top 10 video of what i think are the best ten goals scored in hockey (NHL, CHL, International, or anything). The criteria is only how “nice” the goal was, menaing that when it happened is irrelevant (ie. you won’t be seeing Bobby Orr’s cup-winner against the Blues, or Hull’s cup-winner against the Sabres). The goal can come either in-game, a penalty shot, or in a shootout


10. Corey Perry, London Knights – Completely undresses defender…twice.

9. Mario Lemieux, Team Canada – Heads-up play by Lemieux to let Kariya score.

8. Maxim Afinogenov, Buffalo Sabres – Ridiculous 360 goal.

7. Steve Yzerman, Detroit Red Wings – No-look, falling down pass.

6. Linus Omark, Team Sweden (I think) – Unbelievably creative shootout goal.

2. Jaromir Jagr, Pittsburgh Penguins – Unreal Hand-eye.

1. Alexander Ovechkin, Washington Capitals – No explanation needed.

I’m sure there are plenty of goals worthy of being on here that I left out, so if you know of any, just post them.
