Canucks Goal Of The Season: Rnd 3 Br 6: Henrik vs Bonino

New, comments

As the tournament goes on the decisions get tougher, naturally. This head-to-head should be quite divisive. This one is that sick reverse behind the net pass by Vrbata to Hank vs Nick Bonino's spinaroonie goal against the Flyers.

1. It wasn't the first time (and definitely not the last time) the top line did that play where the forward skates the puck behind the opposition's net, gets over halfway past the net, and all of a sudden spin around and make a back pass while everyone is going the other way. This play in particular was the most fascinating version of it that I have ever seen. Check it out:

I could watch that forever and not get sick of it. Too bad the wizard disappears in the playoffs, hey?

2. However, spinorama goals really get people going to, and Bonino does a wider version of it with a few dangles in between before rifling a perfect shot home:

Please Boner don't hurt 'em! Another disappearing act in the playoffs.

Again, it's a shame that one of these has to get voted out. I love both plays. Vote in the poll below!

THE UPDATE:

Daniel Sedin's OT goal vs the Habs barely beat out Hank's Sedinery goal in bracket 5. I am shocked actually. I think from a style-point perspective that Hank's goal was far more smokin'. But to each their own.
