You decide: Better spin pass ... Datsyuk or Kane?

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!

You decide: Which shootout goal was better?

Claude Giroux wowed the crowd at the Air Canada Centre last night when he played the waiting game with Toronto's Jonas Gustavsson in the shootout and made the Maple Leaf blink.

Giroux's score brought up memories of the man who just might be the greatest shootout wizard of all time in Pavel Datsyuk. Datsyuk has a highlight reel full of tremendous shootout goals in his career, but his score from six years ago against Nashville sticks out among the best by any player ever.

So, when Giroux did his best Datsyuk imitation Saturday night, did he actually outdo the master? You decide: Who had the better shootout goal? Giroux or Datsyuk?

Today NHL.com wants you, the fan, to vote on the best goal from Monday night's action. Which of these gorgeous goals do you think was more impressive? Vote now and feel free to comment as well.

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.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
