Lighting the Lamp: Jokinen Skate to Stick, Staal Miracle Deflection

Our top three tallies from October 8th's NHL action:

1. Jussi Enough:

We'll start out in Pittsburgh where Jussi Jokinen made a pretty play on a pass from Sidney Crosby to put the Pens up 1-0 against his former team. The goal is great but what where is the Carolina defense on the play? What, is this flag football?

The Pens are off to a 3-0 start for the first time since '94-'95.

2. Staal's Blind Deflection This is a great goal. A lucky goal, but a great goal.

3. Sweet Puck Movement by Isles Trio

The chip pass up the middle to spring speedy Michael Grabner was sweet, but the give-and-go that Frans Neilsen and Josh Bailey clicked on was sublime. It's almost too fast to catch on video...
