There was also another pretty good Game 7 that same post season.
...as I said yesterday, I've definitely had my fill of 1994. Being a Mets fan it's very similar to 1986. It's as if the organizations think if they shove those years in our face enough we'll forget about the futility of the last 15-20 years. Let's go Rangers, no way I'm waiting 54 years for another Cup.
...although, these two Game 7s were pretty awesome.
for me, nothing will ever top the Matteau game. One of the greatest series of all time that would end in one of the greatest game 7s of all time. The celebrating had started, we were going back to the finals, and then the Devils score the tying goal with seven seconds left to force OT. Not just one angst-filled, sudden-death OT, but two. And if you remember, right before Matteau's goal, down the other end, I dont know how the Devils didnt score, it was a divine act or something.
Sure, the finals game seven was awesome, as we got the cup, but the Matteau game was one of a kind. And when the NHL Network added it to their 'History will be made' rotation this year, I still got major goosebumps watching it unfold again.
Last nights game, 94, Stevie y's goal are the best. Best cup game 7's are 94 87 and 08. I also like 01 when satan's team lost.
@CinciMike Tough to argue with you there MIke. Not very often does a team have two amazing Game 7s in one playoffs.
@KingBadaBing Great list. I can't imagine the pressure these guys are under in a Game 7.
