There were so many worthy games to choose from over the history of the Stanley Cup Final that we would have been remiss if these games weren't also included at the very least as Honorable Mention:
* 2001, Game 7, Colorado vs. New Jersey: Ray Bourque finally earns a Stanley Cup in his 22nd NHL season (with the Colorado Avalanche)
* 1996, Game 2, Colorado vs. Florida: Peter Forsberg scores a hat trick to lead the Colorado Avalanche to an 8-1 blowout over Florida Panthers.
* 1993, Game 2, Montreal vs. Los Angeles: Montreal's Eric Desjardins scores all three goals, the first time in NHL history that a defenseman ever performed the feat, in a 3-2 overtime win over the L.A. Kings. Of note in the game: Marty McSorely's stick is found to be illegal, leading to the Canadiens' game-tying goal, and then a Desjardins game-winning goal just 51 seconds into overtime.
* 1990, Game 2, Boston vs. Edmonton: After the Bruins and Oilers played the longest game in Stanley Cup Final history in Game 1 (115:13 of playing time), with Petr Klima scoring the game-winning goal, then came Game 2. In that contest, Jari Kurri scored a hat trick plus two assists as Edmonton defeated Boston 7-2.
* 1970, Game 4, Boston vs. St. Louis: Bobby Orr scores the game-winning and series-winning goal in overtime, one of the most memorable shots and follows as the Boston Bruins, as Orr went flying after he sent the puck flying into the goal. The goal capped off a 4-0 series sweep over the St. Louis Blues.
* 1957, Game 1, Montreal vs. Boston: Montreal's Maurice "Rocket" Richard scores four goals against Boston and goalie Don Simmons as the Canadiens win 5-1. Montreal went on to win the series in five games.
* 1955, Game 2, Detroit vs. Montreal: Detroit's Ted Lindsay scores a record four goals in a 7-1 romp over Montreal, perhaps the greatest game of his Hall of Fame career. Detroit would go on to win the series in seven games, their last cup championship for 42 years until the Wings won back-to-back crowns in 1997 and 1998.
* 1951, Game 5, Toronto vs. Montreal: This game was exciting and somber at the same time. Bill Barilko scored the game-winning and series-winning goal as Toronto defeated Montreal. Of note, all five games were overtime decisions. Sadly, hero Barilko would die in a plane crash several weeks later; his body would not be recovered until 11 years later.
