Pool C


Richard Zednik "The Olympian"

Let's hope Richard Zednik doesn't have any plans for the summer of 2012. This Olympic-inspired goal by the Panthers forward just might have put him on the radar for the Slovakian National Hurdles team.


Marc-Andre Fleury "Flight of the Penguin"

Penguins aren't supposed to be able to fly. Somebody must not have told Penguins netminder Marc-Andre Fleury, however, because he takes to the air to rob Leafs forward Jason Blake.


Jonathan Toews "Deja Vu"

If at first you don't succeed ... Last season, Jonathan Toews nearly scored the Goal of the Year with a some nifty stickhandling against the Avalanche. He's back at it again this season, turning the Red Wings' D inside out.


Drew Stafford "Killer Crossover"

HSBC Arena, Buffalo, New York

Drew Stafford must be a big hoops fan, because he takes a page from the likes of Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant to score this incredible goal against the Maple Leafs.


Miikka Kiprusoff "Too Hot to Handle"

Pengrowth Saddledome, Calgary, Alberta

The Calgary Flames netminder has made a career of making incredible saves, but this one might be the best of them all. Canucks forward Kyle Wellwood must still be wondering how Kipper made this save.
