40 moments of Sedinery that everyone should be thankful for

For 17 seasons, we were blessed to witness some great hockey at the hands of Daniel and Henrik Sedin. They could create something out of nothing, using what Alex Burrows could only describe as their ability to “communicate like dolphins”. Crafty goals, no-look passes, give-and-gos and tic-tac-toes are a mere fraction of what is now dubbed as “Sedinery”.

Individually, they were fantastic players. Together, they were legendary.

2. Henrik’s goal off Daniel’s no-look pass which led to Montreal’s defense literally collapsing:

3. Daniel’s goal off Henrik’s bank pass from the neutral zone:

4. Daniel’s goal off Henrik’s no-look, behind-the-back pass:

5. Daniel’s cross-ice pass to Henrik, who put the puck between Niemi to set up Burrows’ goal:

14. Henrik setting up Daniel’s dangling pass for Burrows’ goal:

19. Daniel’s spin-o-rama pass to Henrik, who passed it back and Daniel scored:

21. The twins driving Toronto mad prior to setting up Alex Edler:

22. The slap pass.

24. When they made passing look ever so simple:

25. Another one of Henrik’s no-look, behind-the-back passes to Daniel, who summoned Mikael Samuelsson to set up Henrik for the goal:

26. Their natural cycle game leading to a Radim Vrbata goal:

27. Daniel to Henrik to Burrows. How many times have we heard that?

34. When Thomas Vanek wanted himself in on the Sedinery:

35. Daniel’s between-the-legs drop pass setting up Henrik:

36. Making Minnesota look foolish after completing two full cross-ice passes to each other:

37. Never give Henrik and Daniel open space. Ever.:
