NHL shootout goal of the year?

I think it's strange that the home team shoots first. You'd think it'd be treated like baseball, where the road team shoots first, and then the home team has a chance to match it or win it. Oh well, still an enjoyable game, and at least the Hawks got a point out of it. Let's see them keep up the good work.

I'm still patiently awaiting someone to repeat the "Goal of the Century", performed and obviously named by myself.

I skated in, faked the shot(drop the shoulder, tilt the blade back), toedrag, flipped it up to my right(I'm left handed), spun around, and batted it in backhanded, right over the goalie's shoulder.

A nice change from skating in and just shooting for a corner.

As for Bouchard, an impressive goal, no doubt. I'd be more inclined to call it goal of the year if it weren't attempted by Shannon. Maybe Ovechkin can repeat his sliding/falling goal during a shootout.

It was like that last year. Then they discovered that the team that scores first actually won 75% of all shootouts, so now they give the choice for the home team to shoot first or not. And pretty much every time the home team shoots first now.

Very nice goal, though.

--Roger "Time?" Clemente.

There are still a few teams that choose to go second. I know the Devils do and they win most of their shootouts. Although I don't going first or second has anything to do with that and I think it's more of a fact that they have Marty Brodeur as their goalie.

I don't know the exact rules, however he looks like he takes out the goalies right leg or at least interferes with the posititioning of the goalie, maybe he scores first then makes contact, but thats not what it looks like to me.

They immediately went to the booth to check out the goal. He maintained forward momentum and did not make contact with the goalie's pad until after the puck had crossed the line. Goal stands.

Wow, that was almost as cool as Ovechkin's goal against the Coyotes

Except Ovechkin's goal was actually during the game with defenders on him. This one was in a relatively pressure free situation hockey wise as there were no defenders and even then this shouldn't have counted as he makes contact with the goalie and thus interference. This has already been sent to the competition committee to look out in the off season (or whenever they meet next). You can bet there will be clarification on what constitutes a legal shootout goal.
