We're about a week into the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs and already there have been some memorable highlights.
Here are some of the best so far -- I would say these are in some kind of order, but they're all tops regardless of order:
5. Tom Wilson scores overtime winner for Capitals
Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock was quoted ahead of the series saying he wasn't worried about Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson. And who can blame him -- Wilson isn't exactly Alexander Ovechkin or T.J. Oshie. But guess who scored the overtime winner in Game 1?
4. Plekanec scores to force OT
Veteran forward Tomas Plekanec broke through the wall known as Henrik Lundqvist with just 18 seconds remaining in Game 2. You could feel the roar of the Bell Centre through the TV. The Canadiens eventually won in overtime and that place went hysterical.

3. McDavid scores 1st career playoff goal shorthanded, at blazing speed
It was the 2nd shorthanded goal of the night for the Edmonton Oilers. Connor McDavid put his stamp on the playoffs and probably a bit of fear into the San Jose Sharks defense.
2. Braden Holtby comes way out (like, way out) of net to negate breakaway
In this one, Braden Holtby had no fear. This was in the 2nd period when the Capitals were still up 3-1. Looking back, what a waste.

1. Radulov scores this insane one-handed goal
Alexander Radulov scored this goal in Game 3. And so it has been decided: He's quite good at hockey.
