If you watch the replay of Bondra's goal you'll notice that he stole the puck and took off with one thing in mind - shoot. He didn't even look at the other winger in the "kind of" 2 on 1, although I'm sure he heard him. He had only one thing in mind and that was to put the puck in the net.
He's the only guy on Ottawa who has the shoot first, pass second style of play. Hossa, despite his number of goals, looks to pass just as frequently as he does to shoot first.
