Ending the Honda Center curse.

Oilers having a disastrous, dumpster fire of a season and missing the playoffs after being hyped up as Cup favorites. So incredibly satisfying!

Anaheim getting swept in the 1st round.

Gully's stick toss.

Ovi hoisting the Cup.


And of course, this:

When the season finally ended on game 82, putting the train-wreck that was the Gulutzan era Flames to bed for good.

- Ending the Honda Centre curse. F that place so much. Here's hoping we can beat them again. IMO the worst 'curse' in all of pro sports.

- The heartbreaking ending where we were up I think 2-1 with a minute to go vs Vegas, then somehow managed to lose the game. Classic Flames' choke job.

- Beating the #### out of the Lightning.

- Gaudreau on a 100+ pts pace and Monahan on a 50 goal/PPG pace for 1/2 the season until the injuries started piling up.

- Rittich coming out of nowhere and being awesome before Smith got hurt

- The Arena debacle

- Crashing and burning down the stretch. Couldn't be bothered to watch that garbage

TBH most of this aren't that great memories other then the win in Anaheim. It's sad the bar here is set so low for what we view as part of a memorable season. Hopefully that can turn around this upcoming season.

1. Finally ending the Anaheim Honda Centre curse.
2. Jaromir Jagr scoring his goal with the Flames (both he and Johnny had such huge smiles).
3. Sean Monahan being so clutch until his injuries mounted up.
4. Alexander Ovechkin hoisting the SC.
5. The Edmonton Oilers cratering early after being pumped up as a SC contenders.

Not a lot as a Canuck fan but definitely seeing Sedins go out the way they did by scoring the OT winner in their final home game and just that game in general. Also I loved Boeser's goal against Carey Price where he just sniped it top corner.

What a ####ty season.

I think that game was my breaking point as a fan. What made it worse was that the Flames had actually played a really strong game up to that final minute...and then it all just came crashing down in embarrassing fashion.

Ugh, what a s****y season.

3-1, but yeah — the home opener was the highlight for me. First home opener in a few years that we actually won (iirc). The comeback, the Brodie chant... such a promising start to the season with the Jagr signing and then beating the Ducks in Anaheim.

Frolik missing an easy empty net goal and then Smith tearing his groin trying to make a save 10 seconds later. We had a chance for playoffs. no chance after that.

When Stastny scored the power-play goal in the third period to put the Jets out-of-reach for Nashville . I'll never forget that goal for as long as I live

Ovechkin lifting the cup was great. The woman flashing as he skated by was such a Vegas moment.

The next week of Ovechkin running amok with the Cup was outstanding entertainment.

Man oh man, I remember that Brodie chant. That was awesome. How often do you hear a home crowd chant a skater's name, let alone a D? I remember thinking ''he's back!!" and having such high hopes for him for the season.

Here's hoping he can return to form.
