Gustav Nyquist pulls the ‘Ray Sheppard,’ dekes Crawford down and scores

Ray Sheppard was as slow as Larry Murphy and had hands of stone in terms of puckhandling, but he scored 50 goals for the Wings the year before they flipped him to San Jose for Igor Larionov, and he did so by skating in on goalies and simply waiting for them to take themselves out of the play. Gustav Nyquist made a Ray Sheppard-like deke on Corey Crawford tonight, but he only did so after absolutely flying up ice and dekeing and dangling around Brent Seabrook:

That’s the second time, I think, that Seabrook got deked out of his pants by a rookie this series.

Seabrook is vastly overrated.

Awesome goal. We have a budding star on our team, in Nyquist. He’s still learning and just coming into his own.

gotta chance to see sheppard after he was traded to san jose.  they were practicing before our team was set to play. he scored on literally every breakaway they had during one drill. never seen a sniper up close like that, pretty amazing. and owen nolan was huge. a little off topic, but, i was always upset they traded shep. but i guess breaking the 42 year curse helped soothe that wound. nice game wings, guess they may have to cancel those tee times, eh?

Is it me, or was that Nyquist goal weirdly similar to McCarty’s Cup winner in 97?
