Favorite Playoff Moments

Postby Staggy on Mon Apr 22, 2013 12:15 am

I'm pretty bored and with the playoffs coming up soon I thought it would be cool for people to post clips of their favorite moments from past playoff performances. I'll start with one that doesn't get talked about very often but I absolutely love it:



Still gives me chills. They were such a young team and it almost felt like we were playing with house money getting to the ECF in 9 games with such a young core.

My brothers and I drove up to Pittsburgh to scatter my dad's ashes that weekend and we also attended the game. I'd say my #1 moment in that building for sure. We were in C with E right above us and we could see the balcony swaying. The place was jumping.

Kaspar series clincher was great because its so unexpected.

Nedved 4 OT.

Staal's shortie one of the great series changers.

Lemieux's '91 game 2 goal is one of my faves ever.

My favorites:

- Game 5 in 1989 against Philly, Lemieux dominating and Hextall chasing Rob Brown
- 1991 playoffs: Stevens OT winner agains Caps, Game 5 against Bruins where we took 3-2 lead after being down 2-0, just destroyed them, winning Cup 8-0
- 1992 playoffs: Just coming back 3-1 against Caps, Francis goal from mid ice turned tide against Rags, and Lemieux scoring Game 1 against Hawks to complete major comeback
- 1996, coming back 3-1 against Caps, Nedved OT winner, Lerioux fighting Kolzig
-Kaspers OT winner against Buffalo
- Whole Caps series in 2009, winning the Cup

I'm sure there are many others, but this jumps out.

The famous Lemieux text still gives me goose bumps.

Lemieux's "last" home game vs Philly in 97. Crowd chanting Mario when he gets a break away and buries it. After the game, he took a victory lap around the ice. To this day, easily the most emotional game I've ever attended.

Some of my favorite moments, in no particular order:


1) Fleury's post game speech on CBC after winning the cup: "I said Oh *@*#"



2) The Shhhhh

3) Staal's shorty

4) 4OT goal

5) Fleury's save on Ovy in Game 7 in 2009:




6) Fleury's fall in game 1 of the 08 finals (pure humour)

Obvious, but most of my other favorites have already been posted. Goosebump city in this thread.

in 08' the first game of the playoffs against Ottawa - Roberts scored on a weak backhand around a minute into the game and played like a maniac the entire game, eventually trying to challenge the entire team while leaving the ice. after getting a taste of the playoffs the year before and getting killed by Ottawa this first game was still big.

Recchi scoring in game 6 in 91 vs the bruins. Lange's call is amazing and it gives me chills. Plus the crowd just exploded like nothing I'd ever seen up to that time for a Pens game.

I'll never forget the date they won their first cup 5-25-91, ex-wife's 21st birthday and she wasn't a hockey fan and everywhere we went they had the game on

Fleury's glove save in game 7 on Ovi's breakaway

When the defeated philly and everyone is congratulating Fleury, there's a guy sitting right behind the goal on the glass who has his head buried in his hands like he just can't believe it

I still love this angle / Gill's reaction



While looking up that I came across the James Neal goal. Obviously after this didn't go well, but for a brief period this was a really cool moment
