The CBC has been doing a tremendous job with its pre-game montages in these Stanley Cup playoffs; last night's opener, which was set to Hey Hey, My My, was no exception. Personal highlights include the still-rocking-hard-at-67 Neil Young, the quick fade in-and-out of legendary former Bruin (and, briefly, Blackhawk) Bobby Orr and, of course, the demonically possessed Blackhawks fan around the 2:10-mark.

Below are some of the other great ones from earlier in the playoffs:
