Goals are fun. You know what they say: chicks dig the long-ball bulging of the twine. I'm sure that scoring a goal at the NHL level is one of the funnest things you could possibly do (legally).

What's not quite as glorious - but just as valuable in contributing to the effort of winning hockey games - is the act of preventing the puck from entering your own net. After all, a 1-0 win counts just as much as the 6-5 win. Remember, the ultimate objective of hockey is to score one more goal than you allow on any given night.

You don't truly recognize the beauty, and importance, of a great two-way defenseman until you get to watch one on a regular basis. Then, everything changes and you're left wondering how you slummed through all those days without one. What's even better than that is when you can combine two defenseman of that ilk, to form a top defensive pairing. There's comfort in knowing that you're in good hands. 

Which teams (and individuals) benefited from this sort of chemistry? And how do they stack up against each other?

Today was actually nuts for KHL highlights, especially for upsets. Semin out-duelled Ovechkin, Fedotenko and Ponikarovsky lit up Malkin and Kulemin, Kovalchuk finally cooled off, and Artyukhin lays a hit that sends a player flying like it's a video game.

Enjoy!
