The Hockey News - - YOUR SAY -

1980 made this Louisianan a hockey fan for life! No ques­tion the Mir­a­cle on Ice, still the great­est up­set in the his­tory of sport, not just the Olympics. – @Don Sch­warzen­bach

There’s noth­ing bet­ter than hear­ing Chris Cuth­bert’s call on Crosby’s 2010 golden goal. Still gives me goose­bumps ev­ery time I watch that cy­cle and you hear Sid scream “Iggy!” Then he buries it. Never gets old. – Jared Chonko­lay

When the puck hit the post on the empty net in the CAN/USA women’s gold-medal game (2014). Canada went on to tie and win in OT! What a mo­ment. – @TheSen­sArmy

I wasn’t alive for the Mir­a­cle on Ice, so I’d have to go with T.J. Oshie scor­ing so many goals in 2014 that ESPN started to care about hockey for 48 hours. – @JakeLahut LillePheat­mer­mFo­errs1b9e9r4g’as­g­paeinnsatltCyasnhaod­tai’ns Corey Hirsch that won Swe­den its hfi­irmst oOnlyam­sp­taicmh­pocaknedyg­gaovled,bliarn­thdetod a now-iconic move used all the time by NHL play­ers ev­ery­where.

Mario Lemieux’s “pass” to Paul Kariya in 2002 vs. the States. Lemieux, to­wards the end of his as­ton­ish­ing ca­reer, al­lows a Chris Pronger pass to go be­tween his legs to Kariya. The re­ac­tion from Wayne Gretzky and the call from Bob Cole make it the great­est Olympic mo­ment of all-time. – @HowYaDrouin

Canada won the gold, but Teemu Se­lanne stole the show. In the quar­ter­fi­nals in Sochi, Se­lanne scored a goal and an as­sist as the Finns ousted the host Rus­sians. He then added two goals in the bronze-medal match. The 43-year-old be­came the old­est player to win a medal in Olympic hockey and was named the MVP of the tour­na­ment.

– Stu Cam­paigne Shea We­ber blow­ing a hole through Thomas Greiss’ net in Van­cou­ver. We’ll never see that again.
