#NHLStats Rewind: 2010′s Decade in Review, The Moments

 

The NHL Stats and Information team reminisces on memorable moments and achievements of the past decade

December 31, 2019

The NHL Stats and Information team reminisces on memorable moments and achievements of the past decade. The nine-part series culminates with a look at “The Moments” – one from each calendar year of the 2010s.

 

Jan. 1, 2010

The decade begins with the third Winter Classic, now a staple on New Year’s Day and one of the most anticipated events on the NHL calendar. Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara assist on the first game-winning goal of the 2010s, in overtime outdoors at Fenway Park in Boston.

 

Oct. 9, 2011

The city of Winnipeg hosts an NHL game for the first time since 1996 as 15,004 fans pack the arena, but the visiting Canadiens spoil the Jets’ party with a 5-1 victory. Nik Antropov scores the lone goal for Winnipeg with assists to Mark Stuart and Alexander Burmistrov.

 

Feb. 2, 2012

Edmonton’s Sam Gagner collects 4-4—8 against Chicago, the most points by one player in a game during the 2010s. Prior to Gagner, the last eight-point performance in the NHL was by Pittsburgh’s Mario Lemieux against New Jersey on New Year’s Eve in 1988 (5-3—8).

 

June 24, 2013
With the 2013 Stanley Cup Final seemingly bound for a Game 7, the Blackhawks score twice in a span of 17 seconds to erase a 2-1 deficit and earn a Cup-clinching win in Boston. It marks their second of three championships during the decade (also 2010 and 2015) – the most of any team.

 

Jan. 1, 2014

The NHL begins the year with a bang – and a pile of snow – as a record-breaking crowd of 105,491 fill “The Big House” in Ann Arbor, Mich., for the Winter Classic on New Year’s Day. Tyler Bozak nets the decisive tally in the shootout to lift Toronto to victory over Detroit.

 

Oct. 13, 2015

Connor McDavid scores his first NHL goal after making his highly-anticipated debut five days earlier. No. 97 has more than lived up to the hype as he concludes the decade with the highest points-per-game rate of any player (1.33) along with two scoring titles and three 100-point seasons.

 

Sept. 29, 2016
Brad Marchand
scores a shorthanded goal with 43.1 seconds left in regulation to lift Team Canada to the World Cup of Hockey championship. Canada captain Sidney Crosby claims tournament MVP honors after leading all players with seven assists, 10 points and a +8 rating in six games.

 

Oct. 10, 2017

After a 2-0-0 start on the road, the Golden Knights contest their first game on home ice as James Neal scores his third straight game-winning goal in front of a sold-out crowd in Vegas. The club wins eight of its first nine games and embarks on an unprecedented run to the Stanley Cup Final.

 

Nov. 24, 2018
After scoring six times in a span of three games from Nov. 19-23, 20-year-old Patrik Laine scores five goals against the Blues – tied for the most in one game during the 2010s (also Johan Franzen in 2011). Laine also becomes the third player in NHL history to accomplish the feat before age 21, joining Wayne Gretzky (2x) and Don Murdoch (1x).

 

Oct. 29, 2019

Carolina’s Andrei Svechnikov pulls off the NHL’s first-ever lacrosse-style goal against Calgary. The 19-year-old scores on the move again less than two months later – this time against Winnipeg on Dec. 17 – for a pair of last-minute entries for the “Goal of the Decade” title.
