If you missed today's shootout between the Detroit Red Wings and the Tampa Bay Lightning you missed a good one, but there was one moment in particular that really stood out above the rest.
As we all know the shootout is an opportunity for players to show off their tremendous skills as well as their creativity, and although this one was not particularly creative it certainly was skillful. During the Red Wings first attempt of the shootout forward Jakub Vrana scored what would otherwise have been a highlight reel goal when he channeled the spirit of former Detroit Red Wings star forward Pavel Datsyuk.
I don't really need to say much more, when I say that Vrana pulled off a classic "Datsyukian deke" you all immediately know exactly what I am referring to and for good reason. So here it is, Jakub Vrana's best impression of Pavel Datsyuk in the shootout, a truly great tribute to a truly great former Red Wing.
