VIDEO: Hockey Night in Canada's awesome Oasis opening

USA TODAY Sports

Another big game, another great montage from Hockey Night in Canada.

Hockey Night in Canada has really been outdoing themselves with their pre-game musical highlight montages recently. The package they put together for Game 1 between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks, set to "Live Forever" by Oasis, is yet another thing of beauty. It's debatable if the history-heavy montage surpasses the exceptional "Karma Police" montage from the Pittsburgh vs. Boston series, but at the very least it reminds us all that Oasis was the best British band since the Beatles.
