TSN’s latest Play of the Year showdown includes Red Wings’ Tomas Tatar

Via RedWingsFeed, TSN's latest Play of the Year quarterfinal involves a pair of Swedes...And a Slovakian Red Wing:

TSN.ca's NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with two great acts of deception.

The 14th match-up of the Round of 32 sees the Sedin twins team-up to take on Detroit Red Wings winger Tomas Tatar.


Streaking over the blue line, Tatar feels a pair of Dallas defenders closing in on him. As Brenden Dillon moves in for the big hit, Tatar hesitates and the Stars d-man catches teammate Cameron Gaunce square on, sending both players flying.

Tatar resumes his drive and finishes with a nifty backhand shovel that goes off Kari Lehtonen and in.

Here's Tatar's goal...

And here's the Sedins' goal:

Sedin’s goal was a result of some great passing by the entire line, while Tatar made and entire line look stupid all by his lonesome.

Tatar by a country mile, and I could watch that play all day long.

not to mention, TSN needs to learn what the hell a one-timer looks like, because that Sedin goal was not it.

They also need to learn what an analyst looks like because McLennan and O’Neil are not.
