5 Favourite Goals
« on: September 09, 2018, 10:01:10 AM »

Just thought I'd throw out a topic for some discussion. Last time it was 5 favourite Athletes, now I thought I'd ask about specific goals. Could be from any time, for any reason but what are the goals that you've got locked away in your brain.

Here are mine:

5. Gary Valk sends the Penguins home
4. Auston Matthews' goal #2
3. "Boo Hoo"
2. Gilmour's reverse wrap around to beat the Blues
1. Jo-oooooe Sakic

Worth mentioning that I didn't see some goals live that might have made the list otherwise(Borshevsky, Sundin's 500th, Crosby's in OT). HM's to Stumpy Thomas, Nieuwendyk ending Patrick Lalime's career and Crosby's breakaway in 2014.

Yours?

Sundin scored a beautiful goal from Alfredson vs Canada where he curls at canada’s blue line, receives the pass, splits the D and goes in alone to score. It’s always in my head.

That Lemieux from Gretzky goal is my number one memory of international hockey as a kid. Good call.

No real order:

1) Sundin's 500th
2) Sundin's GTG against Carolina
3) Green's OT goal against the Flyers
4) Crosby's IGGY goal
5) Kariya's 2002 Olympic goal when Lemieux let the pass go between his legs

The radio call from the GTG against Carolina.  That is the stuff of dreams.

The Sundin 500th sticks out for me cause I was in Victoria visiting my sister at the time so the game was a 4pm local start for me.  It was weird seeing the Leafs play that early but so satisfying the way it ended and I still had the evening left to me after the game was over.  ;D

1, 4, and 5 were on my list right from the start of reading this thread.  The other two I'd add:

Lemieux from Gretz at the Canada Cup
Eberle World Junior Goal (2009 Semi Finals vs Russia)

1.  Sundin's overtime goal in Game 1 against the Sens.  I was there.  It was awesome (the one that went ping).
2.  Sundin's 500th.
3.  Lemieux's goal against the Bruins in the conference finals in the Pens first cup run (the one where he deked out Bourque).
4.  Lemieux's goal against the Stars in the Stanley Cup finals in the Pens first cup run (the one where he loses his balance).
5.  Jagr's goal against the Blackhawks in the Pens second cup run ( the one where he dekes out everyone).

Picks are exempt of Gretzky or Lemieux

Ovechkin "The Goal" Jan 16, 2008, scores from on his back.
Sundin 500th goal in OT
Lanny MacDonald the clinching goal of 1989 Cup final in year he got his 1000th point and 500th goal.
Bob Nystrom OT Cup winner May 24, 1980, the earliest I can vividly recall watching an important game on TV and saw such a celebration on ice.

1. Gilmour's wraparound
2. Dave Ellett overtime winner against the Blues, my first live game. I forget the date and can't find it when I google it. Maybe it was tipped it, but I remember Ellett shooting the puck.
3. Matthew's one-handed tip on, rookie season, but no clue when exactly. That's when it sunk in.
4. Fleury: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-P3gA3lkNQ
5. Borschevsky but it was 93

I know this shouldn’t really count but I love Nolan’s goal in the all star game when he called it on a breakaway.
