Ah, 2015. What a year. Quite a bit happened over the last 12 months, as the video suggests.
“McEichel” and “Babwatch” became things.
The Blackhawks were a major storyline throughout, for both good and bad reasons.
The NHL implemented 3-on-3 overtime, with its debut — a crazy 137-second stanza between the Flyers and Lightning — earning widespread acclaim from fans and media.
Other moments that nearly cracked the Top 5:
— Ottawa rallying from a 14-point deficit to make the playoffs.
— Jamie Benn winning the scoring title with 8.5 seconds left in the final game of the season.
— Playoff hockey returning to Winnipeg for the first time since relocation from Atlanta.
— Tampa Bay becoming the first team ever to beat the Rangers in a Game 7 at Madison Square Garden.
