This first one came from Wednesday night’s Game 4 of the St. Louis-Minnesota series. Vladimir Tarasenko of the Blues makes it look effortless to fake out Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk and then score with only one hand. Looks like anyone could do it, right?
This second one is from Game 4 of the Anaheim-Winnipeg series, and is my own personal favorite because we see some ridiculously awesome fake-out skills that causes some ankles to break. Unfortunately for Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba, his ankles fell victim to Ducks forward Emerson Etem. The goal tied the game at one apiece at the end of the first period, and Anaheim would go on to win 5-2 to sweep the Jets in four games.
Please have more amazing goals like these, NHL Playoffs. Sincerely, everyone.
