Nice fake to the backhand. We've seen him try it twice already as a canuck, once in the penalty shot and again last night. Great move to get the goaltender moving.

I like goals more than fancy moves that don't pan out, glad to see he executed what he wanted though.

I'm not sure about his days in Buffalo, but in the 2 chances he had so far with the 'Nucks he hasn't sold the shot well at all.. Burrows should give him a few tips.

I don't think he realized that Mason uses his right hand as a glove. The move he pulled off would be on 90% of most goalies blocker side and that may have been a goal. Using that move on a glove side and not getting it high isn't going to beat any goalie though.

The executuion on the breakaway was better than the penalty shot, he was unlucky that Mason goalie had a right handed glove otherwise it might have gone in.

He didn't sell it that well though

Yeah it's great he gets the goalie moving... But not so much that he doesn't score...

He needs to move his hips and shoulders not just the puck, one or two less stick handles and a shoulder shift would work way better for him.

The goalie didn't bite in the least.

So you say.............however I have seen the move balked by any number go net minders, especially in shoot outs.

Anyone who actually plays hockey knows that shoot outs/penalty shots/break away goals dont always happen the way they want them too...regardless of how good you are. The kid is young and he still has better stats than our buddy Hodgson.

"Go-To"? I think it is just a move he has had success with in the past, much like Burrows' leg kick-backhand move.

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Booth - Kesler - Higgins
Burrows - Pahlsson - Hansen/Raymond
Raymond/Hansen - Malhotra - Lapierre

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Salo
MAG - Tanev

Must say, i'll be pretty annoyed if he tries that move again and it doesn't work. He should just slap it from the top of the circle.

just imagine how much you guys would be stroking this guy off if he could acually put the puck in the back of the net.
