First of all, let’s just get one disclaimer out of the way. These are not in any particular ranking or order. It would be impossible to break them down in that regard, so instead, we just picked what we feel are the ten biggest ones.

By default, all four Penguins games that were won in overtime are included. So without any further ado, here are some fun memories of some really big and special moments of this Cup run.

Conor Sheary gives the Penguins a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final

This will forever be known as the time that Sidney Crosby cheated on the faceoff.

Bryan Rust scores the biggest goal of his life in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final

What a player. And what a run. Opening the scoring of Game 7.

Kris Letang scores the Stanley Cup winning goal in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final

What a shift. Just a total beast shift. What a way to get rewarded for your play to score the goal to win your team the Cup.

Patric Hornqvist gives the Penguins a 3-1 series lead in OT of Game 4 against the Washington Capitals

What a goal and what a moment. The first Penguins OT win, after losing their previous EIGHT games in OT.

Sidney Crosby scores his first career playoff OT goal in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final

Bryan Rust and Sidney Crosby working Victor Hedman. What a game.

Matt Cullen breaks a tie in Game 3 of the Rangers series at Madison Square Garden

Huge goal here. Series tied at 1-1. Matt Cullen beats Henrik Lundqvist clean to break the tie in the third period of Game 3.

Bonino, Bonino, Bonino, Bonino

Nick Bonino, big game player.

Phil Kessel snipes a ridiculous shot that gets a nice bounce and ties Game 5 against the Rangers

The slow motion on this shot. My God.

Bryan Rust comes up big in Game 6 when the Lightning were pushing to the game at 3-3, but instead Rust scores the dagger and makes it 4-2.

Tampa Bay was BRINGING it. You could almost feel them tying the game, and then Bryan Rust happened.

Nick Bonino blows the roof off of Consol Energy Center late in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final with a clutch goal

I was in the building for this one. What a moment.

What a special and memorable Cup run this has been. We can watch these all summer long. Go Pens.
