Pavel Datsyuk proved once again he is a premier talent Monday night. The latest example: After receiving a pass from Todd Bertuzzi, Datsyuk spun in front of the Blue Jackets' crease and passed the puck behind his back to Gustav Nyquist, who scored on a half-open net.
Datsyuk's dazzling dish brought back memories of Patrick Kane's no-look spin pass to Marian Hossa, earlier this season. That superb assist allowed Hossa to bury a ridiculously easy open-net goal on the Ducks' Jonas Hiller.
One question comes to mind with both of these eerily-similar plays: Who had the better spin pass, Datsyuk or Kane? You decide!
