There is no question; it doesn't get any bigger than the Stanley Cup final.
The memories left behind once the final buzzer goes last a lifetime in the minds of hockey fans everywhere.
The LA Kings and New Jersey Devils are set to embark on the creation of a new chapter of memories that will be witnessed on Hockey Night in Canada (CBC and CBCSports.ca).
To get you set for this year's final, @hockeynight asked the fans to tweet their all time greatest #HNIC Stanley Cup final moments.
Here are some of the best tweets:
