1. Stanley Cup finals 1970 – “The Goal”

Bobby Orr is arguably one of the greatest hockey players of all-time, so it makes sense that he would score one of the greatest goals of all-time. In the 1970 Stanley Cup, Orr scored his 9th goal of that year’s playoffs in the flashiest manner imaginable.

In overtime of Game 4 between his Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues, Bobby received a pass near the crease and knocked it in, right before being tripped by Noel Picard. He celebrated the goal while still in mid-air, leading to this incredible image.
