Do you remember some specific great shift by a player?

Talk about any great shift you remember by the all-time greats!

Crosby's dive and then... Zetterberg's super shift.

and also... Darren Helm's PK shift against the Hawks (Helm is not all-time great...but this was something else)

Lindros had many great shifts where he physically dominated he´s apponents. Can´t find the whole secvence, but I (as a swede in the heat of the moment...) was furious when Lindros in the semifinals of 1996 World Cup went out and in about 10-15 seconds tackled and totally demolished 3 (or 4?) of the swedish players. If my memory serves me right it was the first shift of the game. Of all people Michael Nylander was the one who stood up the best. Think Nylander was also the last guy he hit, so Lindros may have been fatigued. Going of 15 years old memorys, so may remember some things wrong...

I think this Nylander hit could be the one I´m talking about and therefore the conclusion of the shift:

Crosby's shift against the Senators in the 2010 playoffs. I think it was Game #2 where he spun around behind the net, carried the puck for a bit, went to his knees and fed it to the point where Letang blasted it home

Sittlers 10pt night against the Bruins. It seemed every shift was special...
Mario Lemieux in his first NHL game, first shift, stealing the puck
off Ray Bourque and beating Pete Peeters on his first shot...

Probably one of Eddie Shack's one shift per game for Toronto in the early seventies. He would skate like a madman like a chicken with his head cut off...

Seriously, Orr killing upwards of a minute on the penalty kill has to be up there...

Beliveau 3 goals on the same power play in the fifties, leading to the rule change...

Obviously Bill Mosienko's 3 goals in 21 seconds...

Scuderi had a particular shift in 09? Finals that may have got him his new contract with the Kings haha He had 2 or 3 hits and blocked a shot from going in an open net I believe

Ryan Callahan had a standout shift I always remember in the POs against the Debs in 08, keeping it in the NJ zone for almost a minute while on the PK near the end of the game.

Too young to remember this next one but here goes

Supposedly one time against Oakland/Cali on a powerplay Bobby Orr skated around his own net as he often did, but dropped his glove. Well Bobby skated all around the rink making every Seal miss, went back to his own net, got his glove and started the rush once more. Of course his rush ended up in a goal, he's Bobby freakin' Orr

Sedins put on a 2 minute clinic a few times a year typically. They dont tire like everyone else.

2006 Oilers playoff PK.

Some of those 5-on-3's they killed off were just incredible.

I wasn't chearing for them(they wouldn't have even been in the playoffs without the loser point) but that was some of the most inspired hockey I have witnessed.

Every player gave everything they had and ofcourse Roli was just sick.
