by Thomas Willis / Nashville Predators

A look at the most memorable GIFs from the 2015-16 season and playoffs begins with a collection of the finest goals. Stay tuned for future GIF compilations (celebrations, saves, hits, etc.) in the near future!

We begin with Viktor Arvidsson's collection of individual efforts against the San Jose Sharks:

Yes, his feet were off the ice when he fired that wrister.

The most important backhander in franchise history?

Filip Forsberg equaled the franchise record for goals in a season with 33 in 2015-16, and many of them had to be included here:

All about the pass on this one.

Between the legs goal!

This may never be topped.

Filip Forsberg cuts from the half wall to the crease and flips the puck over Ben Bishop's shoulder.

And who could forget scoring two natural hat tricks in a week's time?

Ryan Johanen joined the Predators in mid-January, but still produced several memorable tallies, including a goal on his first shot with the club:



Johansen starts the three-goal, third-period comeback in Winnipeg.

The center roofs his first goal at home past Steve Mason.

Roman Josi put together the best offensive season ever by a Nashville defenseman in 2015-16:

Bobby Orr like, in Bean Town no less.

One Norris-Trophy-worthy blueliner makes another looks silly.

Finally, in the home finale, Roman Josi gives the Predators their first 3-on-3 overtime victory at Bridgestone Arena by scoring 20 seconds into the session.

James Neal was Nashville's most consistent scorer during the 2015-16 campaign, netting 31 scores. He also single-handedly beat the Edmonton Oilers in the Preds final game at Rexall Place:

Neal ties the game at 4-4 to help the Predators come back and defeat the defending Eastern Conference Champs in a shootout.

Neal starts the third-period rally versus the Canucks.

Speaking of the two-goal comeback versus Vancouver on March 24, Ryan Johansen and Craig Smith potted two of the prettiest shootout goals of the season to give the Predators a 3-2 triumph.


Craig Smith found twine on 21 occasions during the season, including putting a puck top shelf for the Predators third goal of the 2015-16 season.

A few token Shea Weber cannon blasts:

The third time was the charm in Game Two versus Anaheim.

The first of three goals on the night for the Preds captain; marking the first defenseman hat trick in franchise history.

Look out, Brent Burns!

Mattias Ekholm notches the first 3-on-3 overtime score in Preds history.
