Sometimes you don't have to score the prettiest of goals in order to make the Play Of The Week. Known more for his defense, Mike Weaver gets the Panthers two points on their only shot of the third period as his shot, going wide, hits a Ranger and pops over Henrik Lundvist for a 4-3 lead and eventual win with 8:19 left in the third.
