No. 1: Gaborik's OT Goal vs. Boston

Normal_gabyot_0127_bsu1

For sheer excitement, drama, and clutch reasons---not to mention amazing hand-eye coordination---Marian Gaborik's overtime winner against Boston on Wednesday is this week's top play. Still winless at that point, and just having coughed up a 3-2 lead with 4:23 to play in the third period, the Rangers headed to overtime at The Garden desperate for a victory. It took Gaborik only 27 seconds to provide the winner, netting his third goal of the game on a breakaway. Adding to the beauty of the goal is that Gaborik's first shot is stopped by Boston goalie Tuukka Rask, but Gaborik bats the puck out of mid-air and into the cage for the decisive score.
