Justin Bourne of The Score published a video on Tuesday capturing his top 10 goals of the 2011-12 season (so far). It’s a good list with a ton of action, but it might stir up some bad memories for you. Not only are no Washington Capitals players on the list, but three of the ten goals happened against D.C. goalies.
Enjoy the video and follow me past the jump:
10. Jamie Benn @ Columbus
9. Eric Nystrom @ Washington (Neuvirth)
8. Bobby Ryan vs. NYI
7. Jiri Tlusty vs. Washington (Vokoun)
6. John Tavares vs. Calgary
5. Pavel Datsyuk @ Boston
4. Jason Spezza @ Pittsburgh
3. Nick Foligno vs. Washington (Vokoun)
2. Evgeni Malkin vs. Colorado
1. Matt Duchene @ Pittsburgh
That’s three appearances out of ten– two from Vokoun and one from Neuvirth. The Foligno one still makes me angry.
And if you include Semyon Varlamov and Brent Johnson, then HALF of the stupid list comes from goalies from the Washington system.
Thanks to random caps fan for the link.
