of course it's impressive, but good players have a 'tendency' to score big goals. It's because they are, you know, good. Eberle was a great player on those teams, so it's not surprising he scored those two goals (combination of being good and lucky though).
but, the question most people who question the 'clutch' gene would like answered, and since you clearly believe in it, and it being a repeatable ability, why do players like eberle not use that clutchness to always score big goals? if it is an ability you are saying he intrinsically has, then why does he not just utilize in the last minute of every game?
