VOTING IS NOW CLOSED: Eberle (94%) def. Khabibulin (6%)
Eberle's First Career NHL Goal
After electing to keep on a two-on-one with captain Shawn Horcoff, Eberle dangles around a sprawling Ian White and stunned Miikka Kiprusoff to bring the Rexall Place crowd into a frenzy and put his team up 2-0 in the season-opener.
After the Red Wings re-gained the one-goal advantage, Detroit kept pressuring as they looked to extend the lead. A scramble in front of Khabibulin's crease resulted in a five-star opportunity that Edmonton's netminder literally snatched away.
A desperation effort with his glove tipped a puck that was headed toward the back of the net, keeping the game well within reach.
