I personally remember all of these starting with 1996. Consequently, 1996 is one of my favorites. My favorite is obviously is the Boston Bruins Cup championship, even though that goal was very anti-climactic but still awesome. My favorites are all overtime winners, except for Chicago's, because of how exciting it is and how closely I followed those series - especially 1999 and 2000. Those are 2 of my favorite all-time games, period. I was rooting for the team that ended up winning in both cases. Awesomely, my favorite player in 2000 scored the Cup winning goal, as did my favorite player in 2011!

My least favorites are 1991 because I hate Ulf Samuelsson, and 2007 because I just feel so bad for that player who scored on his own goaltender, and I feel very bad for the goaltender, because I always feel bad for goaltenders for some reason (even Luongo and Hasek).

Some interesting tidbits (all info is from 1990 and on, so exclusively the last 22 years, NOT all time):
