Most important thing aside from goals

What's the most important thing for you, on a Hockey game aside from goals?

Fights/brawls?
amazing saves?
Shootout trys/ Penalty shots?
big hits?
good passplay from a team?
a good beer/cheeseburger?

I think this would be very interesting to know ;-)

I voted amazing saves. Nobody remembers the great pass plays that don't result in goals.

Flow of the game / Up and Down play.

Watching Buffalo vs. Montreal over the past few years has been very fun and entertaining.

I ****ing hate shootouts. Although a penalty shot can be exciting, but it's rare.

Bingo. A good flow makes the game entertaining no matter what. I'd rather have a 1-1 game with the teams going back and forth trading chances with great saves and counter-attacks than a sloppy 5-5 game.

Exhibit A: That one game with San Jose and Calgary. Amazing.

I assume you mean live. I which case I vote fights/brawls. Also, I agree with the guy who wants wins to be on the poll.

Basically the exact same order for me except Shootouts for Burgers - who eats burgers during the games? pizza, yes... but burgers are too filling.

Oh my god what a numbnuts poll..

Who cant figure this out on your own? The best thing besides scoring a goal is preventing one. And an amazing save is what wins you games.

The best thing besides scoring goals is having plenty of beer to drink. This is the most vital part to the teams success and it makes the heckling that I yell at my TV that much more effective and clever.
