Perron's goal for sure. Oshie's had the wow factor as well, but I still have no idea why Luongo came out that far. Looked like a beached whale in heat.

Perron had the unbelievable, 1-on-everybody thing for his favor and he deked them all out of their skates.

Side note, Perron's goal was nominated as one of five "Goals of the Quarter" on NHL.com... except that they are showing video of his less excellent first goal from Saturday night :lol:

But Perron's goal was flat out amazing. Throughout the last 2+ seasons, we've seen flashes of skill like this but making a play like that just shows what he's capable of now and in the future.



True! Perron is steadily getting used to the game. I mean isn't he just 20-21 right now? We have seen the ability but now the confidence is starting to catch up with it. This kid could be the brightest of the youngsters.

My son and I were looking at the goal and we where screaming our heads off! It was just one BADASS goal!

My vote goes to Oshie, because watching Luongo laying at the face off point like a whale that stucked on the beach was fukken priceless!

:plusplus: That's why I picked Oshie, it was against Luongo and Oshie still got around some guys to make that shot- to say nothing of the really tough angle he was shooting from.

Here's an interesting tidbit on Oshie's goal...remember how he grabbed the puck in the air, then threw it down near his stick, made the turnaround move, and scored? Since he caught the puck, he could have released it anywhere he wanted and had himself an easier goal. Whenever you catch a puck in the air when you're that close to the net, you could basically release it right on the goal line and tap it in.
