To supplement and, I suppose, support my previous blog/CDC post, I took the

Nov. 16, 2011; vs. Chicago – 2-on-1 to Hansen
Standard issue 2-on-1 saucer pass. Sadly, this went on to become another blowout loss in Chicago (the undisputed worst kind of blowout loss).
Oct. 25, 2011; vs. Edmonton – Backhand drop to Burrows
You really have to be paying attention on this one – partly due to poor video quality and partly because Henrik's pass is so quick in relation to the flow of play. (For a better angle replay, navigate to 3:58 in NHL.com's game recap.) Salo's shot rebounds to Henrik and for whatever reason, Khabibulin assumes Henrik's not gonna drop a no-look pass to Burrows at the last second. The goal brought the Canucks within one in the third period, but they ended up losing this one too.
Nov. 6, 2011; vs. Chicago – Cross-ice to Daniel
A powerplay goal from the first half of the season (as if such a goal existed in the second half). Again, Henrik ends up with the puck off a rebound and Crawford plays the shot. *insert CDC favourite face palm here* Henrik throws it the width of the ice with Crawford swimming. 6-2 win for Vancouver.
Dec. 1, 2011; vs. Nashville – Half spin-o-rama to Burrows
Off – what else – the cycle, Henrik skates out from behind the net to challenge Preds D Jack Hillen. Who? Exactly. Burrows redirects it past Rinne. 6-5 shootout loss.
April 4, 2012; vs. Anaheim – wtf...to Burrows
Inside-out-How's-she-doin-behind-the-back-spin-o-rama-goodness. Mind you, the whole thing is moot if not for Burrows' equally impressive shot, but this is just silliness from Henrik. An uncontested number one, in my opinion.
Did I get the order wrong? Miss one entirely? I doubt I have to invite you all to disagree...
