Goal of the Year

It's that time of year. Best lists. Fail lists. Looking back on the year that was.

Puck Daddy recently published its Top 10 Greatest Hockey Goals of 2010. Have to say I agree for the most part. But there was one omission, which would be my call for Goal of the Year:

Yes, it's yet another lacrosse-style hockey goal but I have to say this is the most impressive I've seen. Everyone other version has the shooter set up alone behind the net before pulling it off (or in a shootout attempt like that 9 yr old in Boston). All the time in the world. Here Finnish junior Markus Granlund shed a check and then beat the poke of another guy just before scooping the puck up and depositing it top corner.
