Which amazing goal was better? Tarasenko or Malkin

Tuesday, 11.04.2014 / 2:39 PM / You Decide: Watch and vote

NHL.com Staff

 

St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko took the hockey world by storm Monday night with his amazing goal against the New York Rangers.

After accelerating past three defenders, Tarasenko dekes to the left before coming back to the right and tucking the puck, with just one hand on his stick, past New York goalie Cam Talbot in a move that may well have found its inspiration from Peter Forsberg's famous shootout goal against Corey Hirsch to lift Sweden to the gold medal at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics.

It also brought to mind a beautiful goal from fellow Russian forward, Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin, who zig-zagged past several Tampa Bay Lightning defenders before beating goaltender Dwayne Roloson with a shot to the short side of the net in a game played Feb. 12, 2012.

Which of these amazing goals is better? That's for you to decide! Vote in the poll and have your say.

You decide: Better goal vs. Isles ... Mario or Sid?

Thursday, 05.09.2013 / 10:04 PM / You Decide: Watch and vote
Sidney Crosby has had some big shoes to fill ever since he was drafted No. 1 overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2005.  Crosby brought the city of Pittsburgh its third Stanley Cup in 2009 and has done some amazing things on the ice in the process.  But on Thursday night, he pulled off a move that seemed all-too-familiar to both the Islanders and Penguins.

On December 20, 1988 against the New York Islanders, Mario Lemieux broke through defensemen Rich Pilon and Jeff Norton en route to scoring at 14:09 of the third period. Bob Errey and Dan Quinn assisted on the goal in a 5-3 Penguins win.  That memorable goal was immorlatized with "Le Magnifique," a statue honoring the career and achievements of Lemieux, outside Consol Energy Center.

On Thursday night, Sidney Crosby took a pass from Jarome Iginla, picked up speed as he hit the attacking blue line and used some nifty stickhandling to stunningly split the defensive pairing of Lubomir Visnovsky and Thomas Hickey before snapping off a shot that eluded Evgeni Nabokov and found the far corner.

You Decide: Better End-to-End goal

In 1995, the New Jersey Devils were facing the Detroit Red Wings in their first Stanley Cup Final. In Game 2 from Joe Louis Arena, a young defenseman named Scott Niedermayer served notice that he had arrived on the scene of elite blueliners with an end-to-end goal that helped the Devils to a 2-0 series lead en route to their first-ever Stanley Cup championship.

Saturday another young, puck-moving defenseman who seems destined for a great career did his best impression, as Los Angeles' Drew Doughty scored his own end-to-end goal in Game 2 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Final in a victory for the Kings. After taking the first two games of the series in New Jersey, the Kings now head home just two wins away from a first Cup title of their own.

The striking similarities between the two goals and the situations surrounding them begs the question: Which was the better goal?
