5 Must-See NHL Plays of The Week
Five Most Incredible Plays In The NHL Last Week
Kucherov Turns Defense Into Offense In A Flash
Nikita Kucherov’s one of the league leaders this season partly because of his ability to turn solid defensive coverage into offense. This terrific goal displays Kucherov at his best, blocking a shot before sprinting down the ice and applying a clinical finish, shocking the Sharks.
Stamkos Bolts Down Ice For Top-Shelf Backhand Finish
The return of Steven Stamkos created uncertainty for those who believed that injury might have sapped speed and strength from the all-star pivot. None of that turned out to be true, as witnessed by this amazing goal. Stammer sprints down the ice after Colorado scores, beating three defenders to the puck before making Varlamov a fool through a nasty backhand shelf deke.
Gibson Robs Golden Knights With Glove Snag
You can’t win without great goaltending, an axiom by which many NHL teams must abide. Anaheim’s no different. They’ve managed to stay afloat without their top forwards, partly because of solid netminding from Gibson. This flashy exhibit of glove hand glory happens to be particularly entertaining because fans were already jumping out of their seat when Gibson snagged a goal away from Alex Tuch.
Tampa Hopeless Against Barzal Shimmy
Mathew Barzal’s making a powerful case for rookie of the year, partly through plays which defy hockey logic. Watch Barzal shimmy along the boards from the blueline to create enough space and speed to attack goalie Vasilevskiy. Instead of letting the Lightning funnel the threat into the corner, Barzal leaps in front of the net for a disgusting backhand finish from a tough angle.
Devan Dubnyk Denies Marchessault Game Tying Goal
The Vegas Golden Knights ran into amazing goaltending last week, with Devan Dubnyk literally stealing an OT point from the fantastic expansion franchise. Watch Dubnyk use every inch of his 6’6” frame to reach across the crease and intercept Jon Marchessault’s game tying goal in mid-air with the paddle of his goalie stick.
