There’s speculation that the 2014-15 season may be the final year in which the shootout is a big part of regular season NHL contests.

With a push coming for extending overtime in order to eliminate the need for the shootout, it’s going to make the shootout specialist a lot less common and, in turn, could make top 10 lists such as this extinct in the future.

So, while we still can, here are the top 10 shootout goals of 2014:

10. Joshua Ho-Sang dances in development camp (July 10, 2014)

9. Dustin Tokarski bites too soon on Nick Bonino (March 5, 2014)

8. Stamkos spins to put one past Nabokov (March 27, 2014)

7. Alex Galchenyuk shakes off Braden Holtby (Oct. 9, 2014)

6. Gigi Marvin scores outstanding shootout goal (Sept. 13, 2014)

5. John Tavares’ hands don’t stop moving (Nov. 24, 2014)
