Snickers Plays of the Year - Round 1, Game I
<< Game H

Game J >>

Each week during this past season, reviewed all the top goals and saves and put the vote to you the fans for the top play for the week. Those plays are back as the top 32 plays face off in head-to-head competition until a winner is ultimately determined. We will regularly put two plays up against one another and it's up to you to decide which one will advance on to the next round.

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED: Omark (88%) def. Khabibulin (12%)

Omark's Spin-o-Rama

With an opportunity to end the game with a goal, Linus Omark did something out of the ordinary. After collecting the puck at centre ice, Omark performed a 360 in the neutral zone before coming in on Lightning goaltender Dan Ellis. Omark then faked a slapshot and quickly snapped a wrister to win the game.


Khabibulin's Reactionary Save

On this particular night, Minnesota had already established a 2-0 lead early in the contest to put Edmonton on the hot seat.

Nikolai Khabibulin came up big with several key saves to keep the game within reach. This reactionary save on a redirected pass was the highlight, showcasing some astonishing athleticism to keep the game close and provide a spark in momentum.
