Top 10 Stanley Cup Playoff moments part 2

#4 - Keith Primeau's game winner against Pittsburgh in the 5th overtime of game 4 in the '00 playoffs. This game lasted for more than 7 hours and it also tied the series at 2 games a piece.

#3 - Montreal wins 1o straight overtime games on the way to winning the cup in the '93 playoffs.This is one of my favorite moments for one of the NHL's most historic franchise's, The Montreal Canadiens. this moment speaks for itself. I mean 10 straight overtime wins is an NHL record.

#2 - Darren McCarty's breakaway goal against the Flyer's in the '97 finals.
Not known for his scoring, Darren McCarty had one of the best and un-likely goals of all time. this goal also helped the Red Wings to the first of their back to back titles.

#1 - Keep in mind that these have been MY top 10 moments thus far and it should be to no surprise that my number 1 moment has to do with my Detroit Red wings. coming in at the number 1 moment are my Detroit Red Wings winning back to back Stanley Cups in '97-'98. I believe it's number one because they swept both series 4 games to none beating the Flyers and the Capitals. Also the second title was very important considering that earlier the past summer after their first title, the Red Wings limo wrecked and paralyzed star defender Vladamir Konstantinov. So the Wings had heavy hearts throughout the entire '98 season and post season, dedicating it all to their fallen teammate.
