Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July.
When going into the shootout, different players have different strategies. Some players come down wide and cross over the crease, while others take a head on approach. Some players come in with speed, whil others come in slow and try to out-wait the goalie.
Mikkel Boedker, of the Phoenix Coyotes, definitely took the fast approach when he was put on the ice with a chance to beat the Vancouver Canucks. (Video after the jump)
Just a great move by Boedker. To pull that off while going that fast is a hard thing to do. Sure it was a little choppy, but it got the job done, and it made Cory Schneider look just as choppy. It's a good thing Boedker has a steady home to grow in Phoeni.... Oh wait.
