One can never get tired of seeing a perfectly executed Forsberg move to win a shootout and every hockey fan in Canada's day could use some brightening. In the spirit of that, check out Ontaro Junior Hockey League scoring leader Taylor Best's shootout winner on Sunday.
For whatever reason, the Whitby Fury coaching staff opted not make a player who averages two points per game one of their first three shootouts following a 2-2 tie through 65 minutes against the Toronto Lakeshore Patriots. Actually, it turned out to be a genius move to save Best for the fourth round, since he had something ready to best Toronto's Evan Buitenhuis.
That bit of brillance overshadowed some great goaltending in the shootout. Buitenhuis, playing just his second game for Toronto after coming over in a trade with the Oakville Blades, made a huge recovery save in the previous round, where he had to use the blocker twice as he sprawled backwards to prevent the game from ending.
