A short but cool clip I found of Sidney Crosby trying to set up a spectacular goal after juggling the puck in the 2008 Winter Classic between the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins.
Less than ten minutes into the game, Crosby chipped the puck in the air, batted it over the Sabres defense, and then tried to squeeze through and make a one handed pass to Jordan Staal. The dish was too far for his teammate, and goaltender Ryan Miller steered the puck away.
Can you imagine if the Penguins had actually scored here? Would it have been the best assist in NHL history? Here's a GIF of the spectacular attempt.
