You might remember this Pavel Datsyuk shot from last year's playoffs in which Datsyuk put the puck and his stick between his left leg and wristed a shot at Coyotes' netminder Ilya Bryzgalov. He didn't score, but the rebound made for easy cleaning by Darren Helm for the Red Wings' third goal in a 4-3 Game 2 win.â†µ
On Sunday, otherwise known as Ultimate Fan Day, the Red Wings were merely playing a preseason game against the Chicago Blackhawks, but Todd Bertuzzi mimicked Datsyuk during his shootout attempt, evening the score in what would ultimately be a 4-3 win:â†µ
Bertuzzi actually put the puck through his legs and brought it back up front before finishing on the back-hander, but it was still tabbed 'Datsyukian' by Red Wings' play-by-play announcer Ken Daniels. It doesn't matter if this was a preseason goal or a regular season goal, that belongs on all of the NHL highlight reels for the 2011-2012 season.
