    Off the top of my head

    MAF return
    Murray's Penalty shot save on Marchand
    Sid's OT goal against NJ
    Phil's OT goal against CBJ
    Geno getting red hot and scoring goals every game
    Pens awkward trip to the White House

    Sid's unbelievable highlight reel goals. He had like 4 or 5 that just made you laugh and shake your head. Deflections, batting pucks out of mid-air, banking it in off of goalies. Just unreal.

    No particular order:

    - Kessel's OT goal vs CBJ
    - 3rd period comeback in Game 1 of ECSF
    - Murray's return vs SJ
    - Crosby's hat trick in Game 1 of ECQF
    - Comeback in Game 6 of ECQF, and subsequently eliminating Philly
    - Guentzel's 4 goals in Game 6 of ECQF
    - Murray stopping penalty shot vs Boston, then the subsequent OT win
    - Malkin's tear in February
    - Kessel's OT goal vs Winnipeg
    - Sid's stick lift goal vs Detroit

    There's more, this is just briefly thinking.

    Without a doubt, Crosby's highlight reel baseball goals.

    I suspect we are going to see a lot more of this type of goal all over the league next season (there have already been a few) as other players practice and figure out how to incorporate them into their own game.

    Seeing the pens play in Anaheim, and in Pittsburgh when they played the Canucks. They lost both games, but I had great time seeing them in person, and supporting them.

    Crosby with some unreal goals but that goal vs Montreal was unbelievable. Slow motion replays do not do it justice.

    It really did, man. It's one thing to score an unbelievable goal, but Sid did it multiple times a month for several months. For all the **** opposing fanbases give him and have given him throughout his career, he's a top-5 talent ever to play hockey imo. Just an unbelievable player.

    I agree. Those were something totally unique and the number of them that occured over a short span of games was, how you say... f-ing amazing. It was like he was just smacking them in at will. Like "oh yeah I totally forgot to show you guys... I can do this too." lol

    Dumoulin really came into his own the second half of the year and I look forward to him leading this defense next year and after.

    Sid's goals were amazing this season, but when he turned it on in the playoffs it was almost like young Sid out there again.

    Malkin was dominant for the majority of the season. That is always a treat.

    Before Kessel was injured, he had the best season of his career. Good Kessel is fun to watch.

    But the best part of this season was knocking the Flyers out of the playoffs.

    Giroux standing in the slot dumfounded after Letang's trip on Coutier that led to that, I think, Guentzel goal.
    Dumo stepping up his game
    The stars being stars
    Guentzel's playoffs after a...maybe disappointing year. I'm hesitant to say that because although I expected more, he still had a good season. Big expectations for him going forward. KEEP HIM WITH SID.
    Murray had some highlight reel saves despite having a down year.

    Sid and Guentzel running wild against Philly. Geno being a monster. There’s not really many “moments” this year as 3/4 of the season was a successful and veteran team trying to make it through 82 games.

    For some reason one that really stands out to me is Geno answering the bell with Wheeler in Winnipeg.
    Jake's second straight great PO performance.
    Really not much after that except the bat goals, for me.

    Geno batting some poor goaltender's clearance out of the air and getting it into the net before the goaltender could even get there.

    Hagelin's no look pass behind him to Geno was pretty epic too.
