Check out this week’s three nominees, and be sure to vote for your favorite by Monday at 12:00 p.m. MT.

Wolski Dazzles Pens - 1/10 vs. Pittsburgh
Wojtek Wolski broke a 2-2 tie with the Penguins when he made a pass to Ryan Smyth, skated into the Pittsburgh zone, took a return feed and beat Sabourin over his left shoulder. The goal, which came midway through the second period, was Wolski’s 11th of the season.


Smyth Hustles to Goal - 1/13 at Columbus
Ryan Smyth pulled the Avs within a goal of the Blue Jackets with this power-play goal midway through the third period. After winning a faceoff, Smyth charged straight to the net where he calmly buried the rebound of a Brett Clark point shot for his 15th goal of the year.


Raycroft Denies Dorsett - 1/13 at Columbus

With the game scoreless in the first period, Andrew Raycroft kept it that way with a big stop on Derek Dorsett. The Blue Jackets’ rookie had just come out of the penalty box when he was sprung loose on a breakaway, but Raycroft extended his right pad to make the save and keep Columbus off the scoreboard.
