Pours one out for Stevie Yzerman.

That goal definitely came out of nowhere.

I recall this game very clearly. I was watching this on my brand-spanking new 36" CRT TV, woke up the entire house when Yzerman scored, my very-pregnant wife made me rock our youngest back to sleep even though I had to be up for work in 3 hours. It was worth every second.

Watched this hame in a bar. I was one of the few really paying attention.
I went nuts and nobody knew why

I don't think I breathed for the last hour or so. What a great memory. Better yet Gretzsky coughed it up at the blue lline.

It feels like this is the kind of moment that could inspire someone like Blake Wheeler

As far as great OT moments involving the Red Wings go, I prefer this one:

Stevie Y is at 2:12 or so. Outside of The Decision and Who's Now, it is the greatest thing ESPN has ever done.

The IOC has blocked it from playing on external sites but you can still view it on YouTube? That sounds about right for the IOC's level of thinking.

See, I don't care for that one so much, although Ericsson was on the ice so I wasn't surprised.

Wayne Gretzky in a Blues uniform is one of those things that will always be weird.

CSB was dining room manager of a country club he belonged to.  Last minute, he tried to get a table for Thanksgiving dinner.  My friend worked found some space and put up a small table for he and his wife.  As thanks, he invited him to dinner a few weeks later.  Nice guy.

I stayed up late watching that, then had to wake up early to go to Cedar Point.  Totally worth it!

I was 17 when this happened, and I still remember it to this day. Woke up the entire house when I screamed "YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE​EESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!​"

LETS GO RED WINGS!!! Lets get this team back to where it SHOULD BE.
 
2018-05-16 05:28:49 PM  
I was 12 when this happened, walked into the room right before the goal.  Great memory.

This is so one of the most angering Blues moments I've ever experienced. Fark you, subby

Don't know which picture depresses me more, this one or the Orr one that always gets shown.

But it was the greatest no goal game coontil the Stevie Y blueline shot) I have ever seen.

This. I wasnt Alive for Bobby. It still hurts to see, but this one promotes blinding rage and anger. Frigging Nick Kyprios.....

I remember that night well. I was 12 and I went to bed crying.

I'm not a Bruins fan but I'm pretty damn surprised that nobody has the Bobby Orr "Most iconic moment in Blues playoff history" pic up by now.

That was the Preakness game. I missed the end of it because I never heard the one very brief announcement that NBC was switching it to Versus for OT.

wish that was my least favorite playoff-series-willing OT goal.  It should be if they'd have followed the rules.  But they didn't.

Just in case you wanted to see Mickey Redmond's reaction.  Yes, he has been doing color on Red Wings games for that long.
