Carolina Hurricanes Top 15 playoff moments
 
This is an older video, but it doesn't have many views so maybe it hasn't been posted here. Also, I thought it deserved its own thread since it's a pretty good collection and all Forslund/Neutral commentators, which can be sometimes hard to find. Mods can move if they disagree.



It's funny how many teams would KILL for just a few of these moments, and here are 15 great ones. They even had to leave out some pretty good ones (Buffalo Game 5 06 comes to mind first). Overall it's a pretty awesome way to kill 15 minutes, and it beats all the gloomy lockout talk.

The list:

15. Jokinen 3rd period go-ahead goal vs. Boston 2009 Game 4
14. Battaglia OT goal vs. New Jersey 2002 Game 2
13. Wallin OT goal vs. Toronto 2002 Game 2
12. 2006 SCF Game 1 ending
11. Jokinen OT goal vs. Boston 2008 Game 3
10. Weekes' save and Vasicek winner
9. Jokinen at the horn
8. Molson Miracle
7. Entire ending of 2006 Game 2 vs. New Jersey
6. Gelinas sends the Canes to their first SCF
5. Francis steals Game 1
4. Williams sends the Canes to their second SCF
3. Shock at the Rock
2. Scott Walker's redemption
1. The Cup

Jussi at the horn is too low... It's in the top 5

Incubation 08-17-2012 11:38 AM

number 10 is way too low, for a goal that changed night and day hockey in Carolina. :handclap:

Sasha Cares 08-17-2012 11:41 AM

I also recommend going back and reading the game day threads from the main boards on some of those...

Amazing! This team has a surprising amount of history in such a short time :)

La Huracanista 08-17-2012 11:53 AM

Thanks for posting, this is awesome. This team needs to be in the playoffs again.

Crazy that Brodeur appears as often as he does in a Hurricane highlight film. We've really had his number.

This brought back some amazing memories. Thanks for posting.

No problem. I found it on ****** of all places, and I thought it had criminally too few views.

Here's to adding to the list this year.

Phenomenal find. And yeah, #10 needs to be about 5 spots higher. The comeback to force game 6 and the reaction of the fans in 2000 was where Caniac Nation started to take off, but that game had to be the vindication for 2000, where we finally got over the hump and it looked like our turn in the east. Where we went from "that team down south" to legitimate.

Incubation 08-17-2012 01:35 PM

I still have the audio of the Vasicek goal with the call by Forslund somewhere...goosebumps.

Joe McGrath 08-17-2012 02:12 PM

One thing the Battaglia OT goal shows us is that when he's not in his almost Colbertian NESN character, Jack Edwards is a damn fine play by play guy.

WWAD 08-17-2012 07:46 PM

#10 should be top 5 easily, possibly top 3.

Metro Misfits 08-17-2012 09:34 PM

I was there live for some of those, the Jussi Goal at the end was really awesome.

Sad King Jimmy 08-17-2012 09:48 PM

I love the Jokinen moments because of his great reactions. Two of the greatest goal celebrations ever

These get me right in the feels, goosebumps all over.

For some reason, that Staal goal is by far my favorite goal. I don't know if it was the comeback, the importance of the game, or the lady saying "**** you" behind Staal celebrating. Or the fact that is was on Brodeur. Man do I love that goal. :laugh:

HisIceness 08-18-2012 01:31 PM

Would like to nominate Jeff O'Neill's black eye game in the Toronto series. Damn that was a cool moment.

Also, everytime I watch #11 I still lol at the falling popcorn and wonder where it landed.

I had actually never noticed that before. That's pretty ****ing sweet.

What are you referring to? Are you saying the woman's reaction is funny, or the fact that I never noticed?

The woman's reaction, sorry. I never noticed either. She's kinda cute tho, too bad she's a Devil's fan :)

HisIceness 08-21-2012 10:32 PM

Looking back on the cup run, how huge was Rod's goal in game 3 of the MTL series? I know I'm kind of stating the obvious here but had he not scored that, there would have been no cup. Montreal was playing almost lights out until that goal, and then they deflated like a ballon.

Roboturner913 08-22-2012 12:33 PM

How about the standing O at the end of the Devils series in 01? That gave me chillbumps.

The NHL Network (US) has been showing Wallin III in HD as part of their HD Classics series. According to my FiOS guide, they’re going to show it a few more times over the next couple of days, albeit at some inconvenient hours of the day. Furthermore, they’re apparently going to show Game 7 vs. Buffalo and Game 7 vs. Edmonton in HD next Monday afternoon. Set your DVRs, I suppose.
