The best shootout move ever
Omark's shootout winner
It was the perfect cap to a thrilling game. The Swiss led 3-2 with 14 seconds to go before Sweden tied the game on a power play, and Omark's shootout winner was the only goal in a six-round shootout.
If Omark's move looks familiar, that may be because it appears inspired by Italian soccer star Francesco Totti, whose "cucchiaio" penalty kick style became legendary after using it successfully during Italy's Euro 2000 semifinal penalty shootout win over Holland:

The stakes may not have been as high for Omark, but it was still just as impressive nonetheless.
