You decide: Better spin pass ... Datsyuk or Kane?
Pavel Datsyuk made one of the best passes this season Monday night, but was it better than Patrick Kane's?
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!

PAVEL DATSYUK - 03/26/12 - SPIN PASS TO GUSTAV NYQUIST VS. JACKETS




PATRICK KANE - 10/25/11 - SPIN PASS TO MARIAN HOSSA VS. DUCKS

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
