Top 10 Unforgettable Playoff Moments of the Decade

by chewy 3. November 2009 19:13

As we continue with the decade in review, it's time to look back at most memorable moments from the Stanley Cup playoffs over the past 10 years.  Here are the plays and incidents that will be remembered for years to come.


10. (2006) - In game 1 of the Cup finals between the Hurricanes and Oilers, the Canes overcame a 3 goal deficit to win the game.  Towards the end of the 3rd period, Roloson was injured and was replaced by Conklin.  Conklin proceeded to turn the puck over and allowed Brind'Amour to score the game winner into an empty net.


9. (2003) - Andrew Brunette scores the game 7 OT game winner on a breakaway for the Wild against Colorado.  It was the last play of Patrick Roy's career.


8. (2007) - The Sharks were up 2-1 in the series against Detroit.  They had a 2-1 lead in game 4 with about a minute to play.  They proceeded to lose the game and lose the series in one of their more memorable playoff chokes of the decade.


7. (2000) - Keith Primeau scores the game winner 92 minutes into overtime against the Penguins.  It was the longest game of the decade.


6. (2008) - In game 3 of the New Jersey / Rangers series, a new rule had to be invented when Sean Avery stood in front of Martin Brodeur and furiously waved his stick in his face to distract the goalie.  Memorable for all the wrong reasons.


5. (2004) - In the finals between Tampa Bay and Calgary, Jarome Iginla and Vincent Lecavalier square off in memorable fight.  It's not often that two superstars do battle like this in the finals.


4. (2009) - In game 7 of the Hurricanes / Devils series, New Jersey held the lead with about 90 seconds left to play.  The Canes proceeded to score 2 goals in the next minute to win the game and the series.


3. (2009) - In one of the most memorable games of the decade, Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin both record hat tricks during their round 2 matchup.


2. (2003) - In game 7 of the finals between New Jersey and Anaheim, Scott Stevens knocks Paul Kariya out of the game with one of his patented head crushing checks.  Kariya returns in the 3rd period to score a goal.


1. (2000) - Game 6 of the 2000 finals was the only Cup decided in overtime this decade.  Jason Arnott scored the OT Cup winner in the second overtime for New Jersey.
