Was wondering if anyone caught the latest in the once again spectacular NHL playoff commercials.
If you haven't seen it yet, let's just say it involves a OT goal by a certain captain of the Red Wings
I saw that one last night, it was pretty awesome.
St. Louis Blues.
... Get chills thinking about it.
I was there. Probably the best hockey game I've ever seen.
...it was in double overtime.
A guy on one of the Wings boards made his own, and it's pretty good....
and it's a great commercial.
That said, from the perspective not just of emotional impact but also of creativity, I still think this is the best Stanley Cup commercial the NHL has made.
The one thing I don't like about this commercial is they show hand-offs of the cup but not to Vladdy. That has to be one of the greatest cup hand-offs ever right up there with Bourque
That would make it more difficult to maintain the video-like flow of the photos.
For the Tracey Morgan fans, like me, this is a classic....
Blue line shot...score!
Outside of Michigan sports, that's one of my favorite sports memories (along with the Pistons' championship)
Man, this thread got me going on hockey commercials. I loved the Nike series with the goalie....

By the way, is that an up-and-coming Jim Gaffigan in the backseat? I do believe it is. Never noticed before.
This is my all time favorite Wings game
I fucking hate that commercial.
Someone is still a little sore.
I think this is a great ad campaign....however, some fans have made some BRILLIANT parodies....
this is the best parody made so far
this one should have special meaning for Red Wings and Michigan Hockey fans...i hate refs
with a young Finch
That was awesome. I had forgotten that one.
