People that say the "golden goal" was nothing special don't know anything about hockey. Watch it again, brilliant goal by Crosby that he created out of a nothing play. Crosby willed the puck into the zone and didn't give up on it. He saw that the U.S. defense was being passive, so he chipped the puck to Iginla and instantly headed to the front of net and called for it. He shot the puck right away after directing it slightly to be in a better shooting position. Caught Miller by complete surprise.

Not every great goal is a perfect shot off the crossbar. In fact the goal is even more brilliant because it was scored in a situation where almost every other player would have just seen as routine and nothing would have come of it.
