Video- Is This The Goal Of The Decade?

Heck, I can't even remembers goals from the games last night, so turning it over to you.

from Tracey Myers of NHL.com,

In the runup to the unveiling of the NHL First and Second All-Decade Teams on Jan. 24 (6:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN), the NHL will be announcing its best plays, moments, events, coaches and team of the 2010s.

One selection, chosen by NHL.com and NHL.com International staff members, will be unveiled each day in the runup to the release of the all-decade teams. Today is Goal of the Decade, which was scored by Patrick Kane in Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Patrick Kane has scored a lot of memorable goals in his NHL career.

But the Chicago Blackhawks forward's goal 4:06 into overtime against the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final, the one that ended the Blackhawks' championship drought after 49 years with a 4-3 victory, is one he'll never forget.

"I mean, obviously it was a great run throughout the [Stanley Cup] Playoffs and you think you're sitting pretty at 3-2 and they tie it up," Kane said of the 4-3 win. "It seems like they have a lot of the momentum going into overtime. We had a couple of chances early, I think [Kris] Versteeg had a chance in the slot."


Watch the goal below.

Look, I am a bit biased. Very biased.

I fell head over heels for that underdog Flyers team. they got into the playoffs in game 82 after a shootout.

they were down 0-3 in the series to Boston in rd 2. THEN they were down 0-3 in Game 7 of that same series.

This goal is utter rubbish. It was a poopy, flukey goal on a 4th string goalie that just happened to happen at the right time.

This is the best goal you can find in the decade?

Big goal for the Hawks but not anyone else.

Absolutely not.  Heck, only 2 guys on the ice thought it was a goal when he shot it, then a couple other Hawks players started to celebrate.  Then they waited around for confirmation. 

Horrible goal.  Buzz kill.

For those who don’t know, Tracey Myers was a beat writer for the Hawks until a couple years ago.

No. Are you kidding me? The goal that nobody saw is your goal of the decade? Jesus…

That might be the worst game/series/Cup-winning goal EVER.

Since when did the NHL do these “best of decade” announcements.??? I seem to remember that just a few years ago the league had just gotten around to listing the the top 100 players of all time….

This is cheap made for tv crap cooked up by NBC and the league in an effort to get attention during the all-star game when infomercials on ABC & Fox will draw bigger ratings than Gary’s Corporate schmozz-fest…....
