1. Patrick Kane Gives Blackhawks First Stanley Cup In 49 Years (Jun 9, 2010)

What more can one say about an overtime game-winning goal in an elimination game in the Stanley Cup Final? Broadcaster confusion aside, this is one of the more memorable finishes to a Stanley Cup Final series ever.

Kane would receive a pass from Brian Campbell on the left side board, put a few fakes on future teammate Kimmo Timonen and slap the puck through the legs of another future teammate, Michael Leighton. The goal ended the Stanley Cup Final series, ended the Blackhawks’ franchise drought of 49 years without a Stanley Cup championship and started a new age of hockey in Chicago with Kane as one of the central figures in the city’s sports landscape.

The celebration of winning a Stanley Cup cannot be measured, but this one is fun because only half of the Blackhawks even knew what was going on. As Kane rushes down the ice to celebrate with goaltender Antti Niemi, many of the Blackhawks leaving the bench were looking back at the Flyers’ net to see where the puck was or if there was a good-goal call from the referees. Ultimately, the puck was found under the net padding and the Blackhawks were Stanley Cup champions.
