Top 10 NHL Moments of 2014-2015

This list talks about some of the best moments of 2014-15 regular season. Enjoy!
The Top Ten
1 Calgary Flames make playoffs

Even though #1 was a previous non-playoff team that made the playoffs, this one also sticks out. The Calgary Flames were one of the statistically worst teams in the NHL last year, and nobody expected them to make it at the beginning of this season. But, thanks to the improvement of the goaltending and also with players like Johnny Gaudreau, they managed to make it.

Talk about proving analysts wrong.

Coupling with knocking off the Kings.

2 Winnipeg Jets make the playoffs

Why this is #1 is because a lot of hockey fans are Winnipeg Jets fans, and they really wanted them to make the playoffs. When they did, Jets fans were ecstatic.

3 Canada wins 2015 WJC

Why this ranks so high is because Canada hasn't won a gold medal since 2009. Russia looked like they could take the gold. But Canada was also a favorite to win, and they came through and beat the Russians in the gold medal game.

4 Canucks miss playoffs
5 Denmark makes the WJC quarter-finals

This one was a surprise to the hockey world, specifically because Denmark had never made it this far before. Defeating Switzerland made history for Denmark, advancing them to the quarter-finals. Ultimately, they would lose to Canada 8-0.

6 Jamie Benn wins Art Ross Trophy

Even though Jamie Benn didn't win by a long shot, he still won by scoring a hat trick and an assist. This passed the runner-up John Tavares and clinched the win for Benn with a total of 87 points.

7 Devan Dubnyk's revival

Last year, Devan Dubnyk was considered a #4 goalie for the Montreal Canadiens' system and thought he would get nowhere. After he went from Nashville to Edmonton to Arizona, he went to Minnesota. That's when everything changed.

He became one of the most talked-about goaltenders in the league and even became a Vezina Trophy finalist.

8 Los Angeles Kings miss playoffs

Yes, you heard right. Los Angeles missed the playoffs. Now, for some of you, it's hard to believe, but the Kings ran into some trouble at the beginning of the season. When they became a playoff contender, it was too late. Hence #2 on this list.

9 Boston Bruins miss the playoffs

The Boston Bruins were also among the biggest surprises of the season, but for some fans, it wasn't in a good way. The Bruins had troubles keeping their best players healthy and suffered big injuries to Zdeno Chara, Dougie Hamilton, and David Krejci. This had the biggest effect.

Tuukka Rask also had a bit of a problem staying consistent all season, which ultimately led to their demise.

10 Carey Price's superb season

People can argue he is one of the best goalies in the world. For those who think that, this season for Carey Price can at least help your case. He led the league in wins, had the best save percentage, and the best goals-against average.

He also placed second in shutouts with nine. Analysts say he's already a lock for the Vezina Trophy, but he is also a nominee for the Hart Trophy for MVP of the year. They say he has a good shot of winning that too.

The Contenders
11 Andrew "The Hamburgular" Hammond's emergence

Andrew Hammond was among the biggest surprises this season. Being just a minor goaltender for most of the season, he was then called up to the struggling Senators. Then, going 20-1-2 for the remainder of the season, he almost single-handedly brought the Senators to the playoffs.

12 Petr Mrazek making unbelievable lunging stick save

Coming from a Lightning fan, this was one of the most amazing saves I have ever seen in my life.

13 Oilers miss playoffs
