Vote for the Snickers Play of the Week - Jan. 31 - Feb. 6

by Staff Writer / Edmonton Oilers
Each week, reviews all the top goals, saves, hits and fights and narrows it down to the final three. That means it's up to you, the fans, to decide which is the top play for the week.

The line of Magnus Paajarvi, Sam Gagner, and Linus Omark is proving to be a reliable and offensive threat for the Oilers.  Over the past week, the trio of young players scored three remarkable goals to make up this week's list of top plays.  Which one proved to be the best? Watch the clips and vote!

Last week, another goal by Gagner, Omark, and Paajarvi beat out the competition with 49% of the votes.  Devan Dubnyk's Last Second Sweep came in second with 37% of the votes, while Khabibulin's Series of Saves came in third with 14%.

Spin and Score vs LA

In last Wednesday's home game against the Kings, the Oilers were only able to manage one goal, but the play was impressive nonetheless.

 Omark was handling the puck around the boards when he made a pass to Gagner in the slot.  Gagner used a spin move to maneuver around Kings forward Trevor Lewis who then managed to feed the puck to an open Paajarvi.  Paajarvi then one-timed the puck into the open net past Jonathan Quick, and the Oilers were up 1-0.


Inner Gretzky vs St. Louis

When the St. Louis Blues scored the first goal of the game last Friday, the 91-89-23 line equalized it just 3 minutes later.

Omark channelled his inner Wayne Gretzky and stationed himself behind the opposition's net.  Eventually he skated with the puck up to the crease, and then magically passed the puck right onto Gagner's stick through four sets of legs.  Gagner then scored to tie the game at one.


Right on the Mark vs Columbus

In Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, the Oilers once again opened scoring with a great play by Paajarvi, Gagner, and Omark.

Once Paajarvi got the puck into the offensive zone, Gagner made a quick pass to Omark. The young Swede then continued to dangle the puck around an opposition player, before making a perfect pass to his countryman Paajarvi to score the game's first goal just 2:14 into the first period.
