Thanks for the link. I really enjoyed reading Topher's perspective of actually playing in a game like that. And what a well-written narrative.

Lemme guess on the best. May 4th/5th, 2000 Game 4 in Pittsburgh? Cause nothing can beat that for me.

oh man i just watched the replay of the goal and wow was that a terrible clear attempt. i didn't remember it that way - i thought it was on the rush.

meanwhile, my wife was so pissed off at me that night - i was supposed to meet her at a party and, well, triple overtime ...

Elliot made a save on someone towards the end of regulation (I think? maybe the end of the 1st OT) that was about as good a save as I've seen in my life. He was on his side and kinda flipped upside-downish to get his legs up high.

Yeah. I thought we had it there. Seemingly wide open net and Elliott threw his leg up in the air while laying on his side or something like that to make the pad save 2-3 feet off the ice.

I was five minutes late to my own hockey game. Which wouldn't have been a big deal if I wasn't the goalie.

We were watching in my now wife's Collegetown apartment with her roommates. I repositioned on the couch and accidentally sat on the remote. The channel changed, and when we quickly changed it back, Wisconsin was celebrating.

That was a hell of a game, too, but nope.

March 1979. ECAC quarterfinal at Lynah against Providence. We come back from being 5-1 down with 12 minutes left to win 6-5 in OT.

I only saw the 3rd period (I had a Chem 208 exam that night), and it was still the best game I ever saw.

And I aced the exam, too.

Ditto on all points (although I don't really remember how I did on the prelim).

It was he only time I saw the crowd climb the glass and go onto the ice.

Where I sat, we didn't have to climb the glass...there was a door. But yes, I was out on the ice.

Probably no surprise, but I have to pick the 1970 NCAA Championship game, where "my hero" Dan Lodboa scored a natural hat trick in the third period to beat Clarkson 6-4. We outshot them 46-19 and if it wasn't for their goalie Bruce Bullock, it would have been a romp. Those other games were great, but considering the impact of the game, nothing can ever top that for me.

Well there are also not as many people who are as old as we are who actually saw that game....I would have to agree with you, though.

The 5-1 Providence game was certainly memorable, and not only for the outcome: the power issues that delayed the game, Providence player Randy Wilson missing the empty net and the game winning [or game-tying -- my memory isn't what it used to be] goal being scored by defenseman Robbie Gemmell, not with a rocket from the post but rather from a shot from the side of the goal. Good time to be out of position.

It's the March 6, 1979 game for me... I listened to the 1970 title game on the radio... But, due to he lack of seating in the 1932 Olympic Rink, I didn't take the chance on going to LP & being turned away... Would loved to have seen that game.

I still have Lance Nethery's stick from the CU-Providence game... A VERY treasure item for me..

Gemmell scored the winner in OT.

The game typing goal was scored by Nethery. After Wilson's miss of the empty net, Steve Hennessey picked up the puck behind the goal. He fed it to Nethery at the blueline. Nethery skated blueline-to-blueline and took a slapper from the point just as he crossed into the offensive zone. The puck hit the PC goalie in the shoulder, rolled over his shoulder, and trickled into the net. And the crowd went wild!

I honestly don't remember any of overtime, including Gemmell's goal.

Am I the one who is going to post the link to the video?

While the mayhem of the fans storming the ice will get the attention, how many games have you seen where the entire bench empties to celebrate a TYING goal? And it looks like there's one fan, too.

In 2017, there would be an eight-minute review to check if it was onside.

You and a ton of other people. Unfortunately the NCAA does have copies of some of those early games, but has only provided copies for sale of a few. I have the '69 Denver-CU loss.

Probably would agree with some of the above, but no matter what the thrill is somewhat less when watching a game on TV or listening on the radio. (Nonetheless, I still remember driving home, listening to the radio, and freaking out when I heard the basketball score: Cornell 92, Kentucky 77 AT Kentucky!) So I'd have confine myself to games I saw in person (and,since I see though red-tinted glasses, won by Cornell). That would have to be the Dec. 16, 1966 ECAC Holiday Tournament game against Michigan State in the old Boston Garden. Doug Ferguson's drop pass to Mike Doran to win the game was breathtaking.
