What Canadian goal is the most memorable for you?

I know the Crosby one is fresh but for me it was the Sakic one.

I think Lemieux's goal in 87 should be on this poll as well, but in any case, my vote of course went to Sid.

Henderson's goal in the 72 Summit Series will always stand as the most memorable in Canadian hockey history. Unfortunately though, I wasn't even born yet, let alone old enough to have fully appreciated it or considered it as being MY most memorable.

Crosby's goal today though couldn't have come in more dramatic fashion. The kid that was being blasted for "under performing" for Canada leading up to today's game ends up scoring what would not only be the gold medal winning goal, but also setting a new record for gold medals won by a country in the winter olympics. It all happened on CANADIAN SOIL no less.

It just doesn't get any better than that my friends

Are you referring to Kariya's goal where Lemieux let it go through his legs?

I dont recall a Sakic goal that involved Lemieux putting the puck through his legs

Out of 2002, that Sakic breakaway goal is still the most memorable to me (including Bob Cole's call)

I was 10 when Salt Lake City happened so I don't remember a thing except the after-party on the streets after. Gotta be Crosby for me on the technicality of age.

Crosby. Never had a Canadian athlete have so much pressure on his shoulders, and he delivered.

Word. Though I like the 4th goal a little better because of Bob Cole's call. Guy just flat out lost it. Awesome moment.

Even though I wasn't alive, I've seen the Henderson goal so many times I can see it with my eyes closed.

I honestly can't choose. Crosby's is as good as any of them though. Mario's '87 is conspicuous by its absence.

EDIT: add on the fact that he saved Canada's drive for five straight gold medals and I guess it was against the rival Russians

I had not been born for Henderson's goal either but any idiot should understand the significance behind it. You want to see some real hockey, find youself a copy of the summit series sit down and watch it. The things that the players went through in that tournament were nuts. Phone calls in the middle of the night to keep the players awake, Russian police attempting to drag a Canadian away because he complained that a goal light did not go off...very scarey stuff that one. People dissapeared in Russia for that sort of thing and never reappeared.

The hockey played in this series was not just a game, it was a fight between two cultures (democracy and communism)...you would not believe some of the stuff that the players did on both sides to win. The Russians were going to claim victory in the tournament if we tied that game based on goal differential just before Henderson put the puck in the net.

The Henderson goal trumps all other Hockey Moments.

Lemieux in 87! It was the most important goal after the one from Henderson, and was for me the most memorable of them all.

Henderson no competition, Final game of the emotional, thrilling summit series that got both countries into the game. Everything was on the line; national pride, politics, world powers in hockey you name it. Henderson scored, we won and that was IMO the most pivotal moment in hockey history.

Then Sakics goal ending the 50 year drought

Crosby's, it's low on the list because even though it was US vs Canada, nothing super special was on the line.

I wasn't even born when Henderson scored his goal, but I can instantly visualize it and hear the announcer in my head. That tells you something about it's significance. Lemieux's Canada Cup goal is similar in that regard. Kariya's goal has already faded somewhat in my mind.

One of the things about the two Olympics victories - they were just hockey. The other two examples, geopolitics were a big part of it. They kind of touch a part of history in a way that Canada-USA never will.

Weber blasting it through the net leaving nothing but black scorch marks on the netting and never slowing down as it went on to hit the end boards...

It's definitely because I'm a Predators fan, but that goal will be the one that stands out for me for a long time...
