Watch CBC’s amazing Stanley Cup Playoffs opening montage, feel the chills (Video)

It’s an annual tradition, and it never disappoints: The opening Stanley Cup Playoffs montage from Hockey Night in Canada and CBC Sports.

This season … well, it’s just unfair. How do they expect someone not to feel a chill up their spine, or a tear in their eyes, in watching celebrated hockey images of yore with “Baba O’Reilly” by The Who playing underneath them? Watch this:

Strictly from this Devils fan’s perspective:

First Chills … Stevens hitting Kozlov in 1995.

First Tears … Mike Peluso, Man Mountain, weeping on the Devils bench.

Nearly Sobbing … Pat Burns fist pump. You suck, Hockey Hall of Fame Selection Committee.

What were your highlights? Put'em in the comments.

UPDATE: Inspired by UFC 144 last year? Hmmmm ... (s/t Y! Sports sister in arms Maggie Hendricks)
