Worst I felt as an oilers fan was a game against cbus. We were tied in the third and they were absolutely hammering us until we got a lucky bounce leading to an odd man rush on which we scored. We hung on for dear life Columbus deserved that game. Makes it worse that those points could've gotten Columbus into the playoffs
I am usually cool when the Wings beat the Ducks in 7 games. I like the wings, and am a Ducks fan, so I'm lucky to have witnessed two entertaining 7 game series, with my two favorite teams, even when the Ducks lose.
I'm drawing a blank on feeling bad about winning. It's always better to win.
I wouldn't say I felt bad, necessarily, but I felt kind of ashamed that we only won Game 4 vs. Boston because of a fluky goal from Hagelin.
I can't think of any Rangers losses where I felt good, but since Minnesota's my 2nd team Game 1 of the Chicago series comes to mind. When I saw Backstrom get injured in warmups I lost all hope, but Harding made me eat crow.
Best loss - Any one of the losses in the 2002 Stanley Cup. Nobody had any illusions about the Hurricanes being able to beat what was essentially an NHL All-Star team, but seeing my team in the finals was pretty damn cool.
Worst win - Can't really remember anything that stands out, but there was a pretty pathetic win toward the end of the year last year where the Hurricanes got out-tanked by a zero effort Lighting squad after the Canes iced a tankerrific line-up themselves..
worst was the devils last game of the season against the Rangers 4-0. its like they just completely gave up. DeBoer getting ejected like a boss was funny though
You misunderstood the topic, but I will try my best Devils with the limited memory I have.
Worst Win: I honestly can't think of one right now. The Devils don't ever really get dominated in possession/shots always giving them a chance to win. I guess the only one off the top of my head was against the Flyers last year where the Devils almost blew a 6-0 lead by letting the flyers score four straight to start the third. Luckily it ended 6-4.
Best Loss: There were two back-back games where the Devils outshot their opponents somewhere around 60-20 and lost both games. Devils just didn't know how to score.
I'm always happy win or lose when Dallas plays LA/SJS they stay right in the game.
It's annoying watching the Stars play like crap against crappy teams and win 2-1 and act like they were defensively responsible and grinded out a win. It's clear that the only person that showed up some nights is Kari Lehtonen.
Best: OT loss to Toronto early in 05/06. Canes came back from 2 goals down in the 3rd to tie game late. Canes showed that night they had the heart and desire to come back from multi-goal deficits. That helped pave the way to winning the Cup that season.
Worst win: There were several late meaningless wins in the 09/10 season that hurt our draft pick standings. In the end we ended up getting Jeff Skinner who has been a good player for us but those wins really pissed a lot of people off. Had that "Where the **** was this team early on?" stench to it.
Bunch of HFers went to the sports bar for this one, picked a good night to do so. There was a table of Buffalo fans there who were equally excited. Even the wait staff stopped serving to watch the hijinks.
Senators ended up losing 6-5 in a shootout, but the game had everything.
Taking a cue from the poster above me, after we picked up Craig Anderson, he started winning hockey games while Brian Elliott was losing them for Colorado.
We lost some draft positioning and ended up with Zibanejad instead of Landeskog. Not sure how that will work out in the long run.
Worst when winning: Game 7 against Detroit this year... The call on Hammer that disallowed the GWG in regulation had me fuming for the entire OT period, until Seabrook scored the GWG in OT.
Best when losing: The WCF against Detroit in 2009. I was beyond proud to see this young team have their best showing in the Playoffs in a long time. The idea that this team could compete for Lord Stanley in my lifetime was exciting more than the loss was disappointing.
The worst I ever felt about the Flames winning a game was a 3-2 win over Pittsburgh in the 2005-06 season. Marcus Nilson hit the post and the stripes called it a goal, then held up the call on replay. The puck never came close to going in, and that was the game-winner.
One of the better losses Minnesota had was against Montreal in the 2011-2012 season when they fell behind but came back on to tie it on two Matt Kassian goals before Setoguchi fell over in the shootout.
