Foppa's retirement ceremony was my first time seeing the Avs in Denver so that was pretty awesome, despite the result.

Also, Factor's poetic justice shift in OT vs. Carolina and Landeskog's OT winner vs. Anaheim.

O'Reilly scoring in OT after missing three glorious chances to put the team in the lead the last 7 minutes or so of the 3rd period v CAR. I knew he was going to get the goal in OT. I KNEW IT! The look on his face after netting that was pure relief.

Next is definitely Mueller's first goal after returning. "He did it! Heee's back!" McGinn's goal with 1.2 seconds to tie it up v BUF is a highlight, too (as was getting him in the first place). Landeskog's season in general also was an "epic moment" in itself.

Oh, has anyone mentioned Duchene's unreal goal v PIT yet? The toe drag THROUGH his legs... just wow.

For me it was definitely oreilly winnin it in overtime after missing those hand fed opportunities. It really exemplifies the type of player he is. Saw it as his fault they didn't win in regulation and instea of sulking and getting thrown off, he puts the team on his back and tries even harder and wins it.

Buffalo goal was awesome but I was in the bathroom ( on purpose, though. I'm bad luck. I knew we wouldn't score if I was watching lol)

This is my favorite as well. Also really liked Varly's beast performance in NYR and also when the Avs beat the Wings in Detroit shortly after their streak was done.

3. Landeskoging - OT goal against the ducks
2. Varlamov shootout celebration against the kings where he casually shrugged towards the bench - such swagger
1. McGinn's goal with 0.4 seconds left in the game against Buffalo

Those were 3 of my favourite moments in a while, not just this season.

My favorite moments...

The way Varlamov lost the starting role, then even with Giguere playing so well, came back with a vengeance and took it back. Recsguy was never heard from again.

Mueller stepping on the ice for the first time in a regular season game.

McGinn scoring to send it to overtime.

Landeskogging.

Forsberg retirement ceremony.

Hejduk getting named captain (even though I don't agree with it).

Honorable mention... Military appreciation night. That was a good ceremony.

My top 10

1. Mcginns goal with .4 left I paused a bit because he phanned then went crazy when it went in running around the house like I just won the lottery.

2. ROR OT goal with seconds left against the Hurricanes. Electrifying was the best way to describe that.

3. The berth of Landeskog'n. The guy had IV's in him less then 24 hrs before the game and comes out and scores the OT winner. Beautiful.

4. Matt Duchenes 1st career hat trick against the Stars. For a a very dissapointing season this was prolly his best moment. The hat trick goal was a beauty.

5. Varlamovs shutout performance against the Bruins. Goalie clinic 101 made some unreal saves. The Lucic save comes to mind.

6. Steve Downie kicking the helmet. Yah I was mad at him but thinking back now it was funny and we won the game anyways so all is forgiven.

7. Erik Johnsons goal streak. Hopefully a sign of things to come next year. Would love his offensive numbers to explode next season.

8. Stefan Elliotts end to end goal against the Sharks.

9. Varlamovs shoulder shrug after a shootout win. Like, " What your surprised?"

10. Everything Mark Rycroft had to say this year especially the, " Nope, Never, Next" thing

Don't forget the time Haynes and McNab were drunk while on the air.

This one's definitely up there for me, too. I was at that game and the Garden was stunned. It's not often you get to see a goalie outshine Lundqvist in a game, especially the way Varly did that night.
