Jagr’s first big-time goal in the NHL. He followed it up by possibly flipping the bird during his weirdo celebration. This one gets bonus points because I was there in person as a 12 year-old.
9. Straka Slide (4:22 mark)
One of my favorite series in Penguin history. Straka’s celebration was the release of emotion for a team that overcame huge odds for the upset.
8. Stevens tackles Francis
Underrated goal in Penguin history. Without the heroics of Ronnie Franchise that night, the Pens don’t go back-to-back.
7. Sykora the Savior
Epic. Great team celebration. Nuff said.
The beginning of a great era in Pittsburgh hockey. Vintage Malkin glass-leap.
5. Mario Finals Celebration
Shit like this is why he’s known as “Buries It.” The celebration is cool as fuck.
4. Kovy Moonwalk
It’s the fucking moonwalk. He only does it after hat tricks. The fact that the guy is good enough to have his own standard hat trick celebration makes it that much better.
3. Nedved Ends the Marathon
Jubilation. Relief. Pooping on the Craps yet again. What’s not to like about this classic celebration at the end of a classic game.
2. Kaspar Pile
The surprise element of Kaspar putting one home past a hall of famer in a game seven. Great pile-on action.
1. Robbie Brown Windmill Action
Robbie Brown + mullet+ late 80s NHL+ windmill = fucking sweetness.
