The Top Ten

1 Miracle On Ice

Deffinently should be number 1. We beat USSR. Team full of unsuspecting players came out, worked hard, and won. - Heffir

USA pulls of the massive upset to best the mighty Soviets and go on to win the gold medal in 1980 Lake Placid

Why is this number 1? Hockey is USA's 5th favourite Sport. Canada's 2nd behind lacrosse.

Its the greatest game/ upset in the history of sports how is it 2?

2 Canada Wins Summit Series

I was born in the 80s... but anyone who doubts that this is by far the greatest moment in hockey history has obviously never understood the full story of what happened in 1972. Not only were we getting beat by a team we were told was comparable to our Junior B teams but we were getting beat by a bunch of communists. This is why the team was booed off the ice and had debree thrown at them in Vancouver. When they came back to Canada victorious, however, they recieved a hero's welcome at the Montreal airport!

Should be #1. Only reason why miracle on ice is #1 is because the entire the top tens list headquarters is based in the United States. If this sight was based in Canada summit series would be #1.

Paul Hendersons historic 1972 winning goal with only 34 seconds left in game 8 is a defining peice of hockey and canadain history

Americans just can't properly appreciate the magnitude of this series! It's part of Canadian identity

3 Sidney Crosby's Golden Goal

Crosby's golden goal is a Canadian version of miracle on ice and miracle on ice is an American version of the '72 summit series.

when Crosby scored in overtime to win the 2010 olympics in Vancouver canada went crazy

And now Canadians treat him like a god. As a Canadian I do not like Crosby. He is not the best Gretzky is.
