CHICAGO — If you like watching dramatic hockey, Week 8 was the perfect week for you. From shootouts, breakaway goals and textbook passing plays, we're looking back at some of the best plays from this past weekend.

In a shootout that was taken to 11 rounds, Hunter Hady said he saw enough as he took matters into his own hands with this goal that put the Chicago Steel over the Madison Capitols.

Capitalizing on a Dubuque turnover is the Youngstown captain Shane Lachance.

Dragging the puck and going backhand to score is another beautiful goal from Sioux City Musketeers Ryan Conmy.

Boston Buckberger made a pass off the boards to Mason Marcellus, and on the breakaway Marcellus scores to bring the Lincoln Stars a goal ahead of the Des Moines Buccaneers.


Patience is key, and you can take notes from the Dubuque Fighting Saints on this passing sequence that set up a goal for Jacob Jeannette.
