Since we're nearing the 10 year anniversary of the 2002 Cup run, I thought I'd start this poll.

My personal favorite was Larionov's overtime goal against Carolina. Still the loudest I've ever screamed during any game or any Wings goal.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Roy lying in the net after we lit him up in the first period of game seven. His misery felt soooo good.

Larionov for sure. I was still young then so it seemed like the longest game ever. I was up, but 3/4 asleep...and when he scored I was so excited I was ready to start my day. Lol

i just watched all those clips (couldnt find pronger injury) on youtube and the shanny goal brought a tear to my eye, so i picked that one.

the moment where you know its over and we won the cup is just incredible, eventhough it probably wasnt the best play of the run.

Oh man. I cannot vote in this one.

The statue of liberty goal was my most vivid Red Wing moment and the Larianov goal was the biggest goal that year.

But.... what if Pavel scored here?

Close call between the failures of evil Roy and evil Pronger. Roy wins cause I still think that he's evil but Pronger I've somewhat forgiven.

Here's the clip. Pronger missed the rest of the series and most of the following season because of this injury. Yzerman was obviously a target because of his knee injury and lack of mobility.

Yup.

Still remember watching it with my dad up until 1:14 in the morning when he scored. Amazing game.

It's easy to forget that Detroit had to score with the goalie pulled just to tie it up. (We don't do things like that anymore <_< ).

I voted the statue of Liberty play. Not because I'm so negative that I loved seeing his failure (I did love it, though), but because it was such a turning point in the playoffs. From that moment on the Wings were pretty relentless.

That was also while the rivalry was going very strong, to me it was always such an awesome feeling when the Wings would beat the Aves.

All of those moments are awesome though, the OT goal was pretty memorable as well.

That play did turn that series around for sure.

But the true "turning point in the playoffs" would have to be Lidstrom's goal on Cloutier. I'm surprised more people aren't voting for that one really.

Got me watching highlights so thanks! :D

Just wondering though, when did the 'tradition' come in that players don't touch the conference trophies? Because in 2002 both captains raised their respective conference trophies. Wouldn't be a surprise if it was a league mandated request

Brett Hull's tying goal in Game 3 was the most important, IMO.

Y'know, I voted for Larionov's goal. But, now that I think about it, the Game 7 Avs blowout was probably one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.

Man, that whole run was a joy.

That was also when Lidstrom could play 4 straight minutes in the 3rd period to make sure we tied it up. :hehe:

Center Ice goal was the most important. Definitely would've lost to Vancouver if Lids didn't blast that one. And the thing is, Canucks fans would still talk about the series win to this day.

I rate the statue of liberty as being one of the most influential moments in playoff history. The series was pretty tight at that point, with the Avs holding onto some good momentum. That play doesn't happen, and Colorado could have easily ended up hoisting the Cup that summer, with how that series was heading.

For some reason (back then I was actually optimistic) I felt that we would win that game 6.

Obviously, in a tight defensive series and before the "new NHL" rules were implemented, any goal was huge. That goal wound up being the winning goal, and the first time in the series the Wings scored first.
