No. 2: Staal's Goal vs. Toronto


Simply put, Marc Staal's first goal of the season came on one of the prettiest passing plays we will see all year. Marian Gaborik's uses his speed to enter the offensive zone before slowing things down and allowing defenseman Michael Del Zotto to slip ahead of him. This sets the stage for a picture-perfect Tic Tac Toe passing sequence in which Gaborik finds Del Zotto, and Del Zotto in turn finds Staal alone in front for the score. Not only was it a pretty goal, it was a clutch one, too, as it tied the game with the Maple Leafs at 2-2 7:36 into the third period, setting the stage for the Rangers big finish in a 5-2 victory.
