#POINT6 - @cjzero

Holl's game winner with 0.6 seconds left will be etched in the minds of Gopher fans forever. Where would you rank it among the best goals in Minnesota Hockey history?

Neal Broten

Grant Potulny

Blake Wheeler

Matt Koalska

And now?

Justin Holl

Last night's amazing finish is among the best in Minnesota Gopher Hockey history. So where should it rank? Let's take a look at the candidates one by one.

Neal Broten - 1979


Neal Broten's game winning goal clinched the U's third national title under Herb Brooks. Oh yea, he was a freshman too.

Grant Potulny - 2002


[Ed: The whole video is awesome and worth the time, but for Grant's goal skip to 0:51]

After the Gophers forced overtime with a late game tying goal in regulation, Grant Potulny potted this game winner to give Don Lucia his first national title at Minnesota and the school's first since the Broten game winner in 1979.

Blake Wheeler - 2007


This Broten-esque diving OT game winner over UND earned the Gophers the WCHA Final Five title.

Matt Koalska - 2002


[Ed: The whole video is awesome and worth the time, but for Grant's goal skip to 0:15]

Grant Potulny's national title winning game winner might be the most iconic goal from that night in St. Paul, but it never could have happened without this game tying goal with 53 seconds left in regulation.

Justin Holl - 2014


Holl collects a Rau rebound with his skate, gets it on his stick with fleeting seconds left, and scores with 0.6 seconds left in regulation to send the hate Whioux home from the Frozen Four. Oh, and lest anyone forget...it was a shorty.
