    One of the best moments in the history of hockey. Couldn't have happened to a better piece of crap. Brad Marchant's hero no doubt.

    You nailed it there! Legendary game. Even the goaltenders got into it. Patrick Roy was the 2nd biggest piece of sh!t on that team after Claude ‘the turtle’ Lemieux



    And the Wings won the Stanley Cup that season

    Well that sucked. Really can't odds the way Holtby played in G6,7.

    The NHL must be licking its marketing chops: either Ovie gets a cup or the expansion darlings defy the odds. Win win for Bettman's team!

    Extinction of undesired behavior is usually best achieved by ignoring said behavior. :ninja2:

    I think he's ashamed of the boos.

    I always hated Roy, so I naturally gravitated to the Wings during that time. I still hate the Avalanche. McCarty was the man. I remember earlier in that series Lemieux trying to start something with Slava Kozlov (little guy), then McCarty comes over and offers to fight and punk-ass Lemieux basically running away. Of course, all of this stemmed from one of the worst cheap shots in NHL history.


    Here's a great clip of the fight.

    I think you're the only person who actually cares, or even remembers it. Then again, the rest of us were watching a hockey game, not sitting there cherry picking things to run down the Lightning fanbase for.

    I don't see anything cheap about his play (at least in our series). He's just a tough SOB. I'd take him in a minute. Frankly, we could use a guy like that.

    Funny story. I live in Arlington, VA where the Caps practice so I see them out during lunch and sometimes out at the local bars at night. 3 years ago I was at a rooftop bar with a couple of female friends, admittedly drunk and being loud, and Wilson was there and I guess mistook me for some random a**hole trying to hit on them, so he came up to one of them and asked, “Is that guy bothering you? I’ll beat his ass” and she explained that she was with me but I overheard it and said “What’s up big guy?” and had to be split up. In reality back then he had like 30lbs on me and likely would have bitch slapped me into next week but nothing happened and I enjoy telling the story.

    I still consider him somewhat a liability but I can’t argue he’s entertaining and he also invites penalties, so good for him.

    In the end, Lars Eller got the Stanley cup clinching goal.
