Round 3, Game A >>



Each week during this past season, edmontonoilers.com reviewed all the top goals and saves and put the vote to you the fans for the top play for the week. Those plays are back as the top 32 plays face off in head-to-head competition until a winner is ultimately determined. We will regularly put two plays up against one another and it's up to you to decide which one will advance on to the next round.


VOTING IS NOW CLOSED: Eberle (77%) def. Gagner (23%)

Gagner's Drive & Persistence

Dustin Penner collects the puck in the high slot, where he then makes an excellent soft-area pass to a forgotten Sam Gagner down low. The 21-year-old makes a few moves before placing a shot on Antero Niittymaki.

The initial attempt is turned aside, but Gagner follows his rebound and, despite being off-balance, reaches around the sprawling netminder to notch his sixth tally of the 2010-11 season.

Eberle & the Veteran Connection

In what began as a harmless two-on-two against the Blackhawks through the neutral zone, Shawn Horcoff slows the pace just inside the Chicago blueline, while Jordan Eberle locates an unchecked area behind the defence.

The captain places a perfectly-timed pass on the tape of Eberle, who proceeds to cut across the goal-mouth, depositing another slick backhand goal to increase Edmonton's lead.
