No. 4: Benny Notches One Against Toronto


Benoit Pouliot has been scorching hot the last month, and enters play this coming week with five goals in his last eight games. Not one of those goals has come from more than five feet away from the net; and the same holds true for this goal Saturday night in Toronto, the backbreaking score which gave New York a 3-0 lead en-route to a 7-1 victory. Derick Brassard finds an open Marc Staal, and Staal makes the perfect tape-to-tape cross-crease pass to Pouliot, who has an easy tap-in for his eighth goal of the season at 10:39 of the second period.
