1995 Western Conference Finals, Game 2.

It happens at 3:55, but if you aren't familiar with this clip you will need to go to the replay at 4:45 to see what actually happened.



Very, very close to being one of the biggest playoff gaffes ever.

Best almost goal? How about one that wins the Stanley Cup?

This thread was made for Wellwood's time with the Canucks

Just one example:



He also has one that was .3 seconds late or something like that against the Oil, but I can't seem to find it.

Yeah, why bother acquainting yourself with what the rules actually were, when you can just regurgitate that stupid photo that completely ignores the context of the entire play?

At about the 9:50 mark or so. Displays Crosby's strength on the puck and skating ability.

Its plays like this that make me miss hockey. Guys like Pavel, who are ridiculous talents on both ends of the rink, make the game fun to watch...make you forget the bullcrap were going through now. I think ill just youtube Datsyuk at work all day.

If DaCosta finished that play he would have been given another 10 game tryout before getting sent down to the AHL. He has amazing hands.

Sergei Samsonov averaged one almost-goal per game when he was a Blackhawk. over 2o games, and didn't score once. It was borderline unbelievable, and almost ruined his career.

Can't find any videos. Probably because, someone can correct me if I am wrong, Hawks games were still not televised at that time. Samsonov played at the start of '07-'08. The games wer put back on TV, only partially, later that season.

This thread reminded me of when Kyle Wellwood went coast-to-coast and scored a beautiful goal...a second too late in the 3rd.

And a minority of people still argue it was a good goal

One that I've read about and really wish I could find video of:

Against the Golden Seals, Bobby Orr got hit at center ice and lost his glove. The Seals dumped the puck in, and Orr went back to get it, started an end to end rush, and picked up his glove at center while stickhandling with one hand. He got in for a shot but Gary Smith made a save.

Apparently, both benches groaned at the save.
