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

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
