    the shooter has no pressure. It's easy to deek someone if it is one sided. :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't say that the shooter has no pressure and it certainly isn't easy. In fact it is more possible that the goalie saves, the odds is on his side.

    However I must say it is fun to see that such a trick works at the highest level, exactly the same every teenager (or even younger) use to learn after training but never have the guts to do in a real match.

    Oh yes, I remember that one. It was actually the gamewinning shootout goal in the longest NHL shootout ever (so far). Malik is a defenceman, and was something like the 13th shooter, so he was not exactly expected to be pulling out crazy moves like that.

    Oh well, worked for him!

    I still think Jason Spezza's goal against montreal was the best goal of the year...

    that shot was base on a distraction and not considered a deception (in my book).

    That shot is in theory not a legal shot. In shutout, the puck always have to be pushed forwared while this one has been pushed back.

    The goal somehow been judged good and very spectacular one indeed :p

    Great clips,

    The Malik goal was cute.
    Decades ago I had a friend who would do that all the time. He was like Taufik.....gifted and lazy. Lots of between-the-legs and one-arm-reaching dekes and such. Anyhow, as a goalie it didn't take long for me to get used to these tricks...but it was always a pleasure to watch him do it to new chumps.

    The missed open net certainly has joined the pantheon of "Who's the Goat" bonehead plays....Edmonton had one of it's own doozies back in the 80's with an own goal vs Calgary...what year was that? (am I showing my age?)

    of course cooler of calgary flames fan back then remembered that one;) I wasn't into badminton back then.


    Broadcast Date: April 30, 1986

    And you thought you had a rough day at the office. Despite an exemplary 15-year career during which he was regarded as one of the NHL's top defencemen, Steve Smith will always be remembered for accidentally knocking the Edmonton Oilers out of the 1986 playoffs with an own goal.
    The infamous gaffe transpires early in the third period of Game 7 of the Smythe Division final, with the reigning Stanley Cup champions tied 2-2 with their provincial rivals, the Calgary Flames. Smith – who has just registered an otherwise impressive rookie season – attempts a risky cross-ice clearing pass from behind the Oilers goal line, then watches in horror as the puck caroms off of goaltender Grant Fuhr's left skate and into the Edmonton net.

    1986: Own goal, oh no and eliminated themself from the playoff

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snGQQw7bfqA

    • James Stephen Smith was born in Glasgow on April 30, 1963. He played junior hockey with the London Knights and Brantford Alexanders of the Ontario Hockey League, and made his professional debut with the American Hockey League's Moncton Alpines. Smith has also donned the sweaters of the Nova Scotia Oilers, Chicago Blackhawks and Calgary Flames.
    • Smith's own goal was scored on his 23rd birthday.

    • Although initially awarded to Calgary Flames veteran Lanny McDonald, Smith's own goal was later credited to Flames centre Perry Berezan, who had been the last Calgary player to touch the puck.

    • A year after hastening the Edmonton Oilers' exit from the postseason, Smith helped his team capture the 1987 Stanley Cup – the team's third championship in four years. Upon being presented with the coveted trophy, team captain Wayne Gretzky passed the prize directly to Smith in a symbolic gesture of vindication.

    • For the rest of his career, Smith was routinely teased by scornful spectators who would yell "shoot!" whenever he carried the puck behind his own net.

    • James Stephen Smith is occasionally confused with Canadian-born NHL defenseman Steve Smith, who played just 18 games (collectively) for the Philadelphia Flyers and Buffalo Sabres in the 1980s.

    Cooler,

    That is way too funny...
    ...(or pathological) that you recall all those details.:)
    Hockey will always be my number one favorite sport. Lin Dan's sprawling defense has nothing on the desperate invigorating sprawling of a goalie "under pressure" (to borrow the badminton phrase).

    What is the feeling of BC members on the upcoming Stanley Cup?

    I am not following closely, but it's always good when the Cup will stay north of the Mason-Dixie line.

    i dont follow hockey anymore either. All the best players are bought up by the US clubs, so by logic, they will alway win:D

    I didi remembered it was the original classic Oilier steve smith, the goalie grant fuhr and the calgary flames. The rest of the details were just copied and pasted:D

    the road to the stanley and grey cup for calgary is alway through edmonton, they always seem to able snuff us.

    in football, the eskimo has warren moon and pinball clemon
    in hockey, oilers got gretzky, fuhr, messier, lowe, kurri, coffey, anderson, semenko, ,Mactavish, moog

    The important question for a Calgary fan of that vintage is.....
    ....did you sport a Lanny MacDonald mustache?
    (or slightly more recently a Mike Commidore 'fro :D)

    There are two main types of hockey. The more widely played game is called field hockey, followed by ice hockey. Perhaps it should be retitled 'Very nice ice hockey goal!".
