It's not often you see two unbelievable goals scored in a span of week, or even a month sometimes, but on Monday night, NHL fans were fortunate enough to witness two amazing individual efforts that resulted in goals.

In Anaheim, the ultra-talented Bobby Ryan caught a pass off the boards from teammate Teemu Selanne and snuck in behind the Edmonton defense. Ryan then raced in from the boards and as he made his deke to the backhand, Ryan was tripped up by defender Ryan Whitney. However, that did not prevent Ryan from roofing his shot past Nikolai Khabibulin for the gorgeous goal.

In Winnipeg, Chris Thorburn did his best to outshine Ryan's great goal. Known for his toughness, Thorburn decided to show off his speed and hands against the Sabres. Thorburn broke in against Buffalo defenseman Robyn Regehr and flashed some serious leg speed by taking him to the outisde. He then worked his way back towards the net and pulled off a quick toe-drag deke to avoid a poke-check attempt from Ryan Miller and was able to tap the puck in for a fantastic goal.

BOBBY RYAN - GOAL AGAINST THE EDMONTON OILERS


CHRIS THORBURN - GOAL AGAINST THE BUFFALO SABRES



Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
