1) December 31, 2016 Vs. Montreal Canadiens

And the number one goal on my list is this beauty right here.

What’s not to love about this goal?

Kessel’s shot is one thing, but here he shows that he’s got moves on the breakaway too. His speed as he breaks out and the way he carries the puck around Ryan Johnston so easily shows just how dangerous he is.

The deke and the backhand shot is amazing to begin with, but may I add that he scored this goal on Carey Price? All in all this was a beauty of a goal and my favourite from this season.
