I love the shanny clothesline wwf style

That's my favorite part of the whole night, honestly. I wish there was a photograph of he and Roy colliding in mid air.

Man, those videos remind me how intense the rivalry was. I remember every time we played Colorado my stomach would be in knots all day thinking about it. Haven't had anything like that since.

It wasn't a clothesline. Not even close.

wow didn't realize it's been 16 years, doesn't seem quite that long ago

one of the best hockey games ever, had everything a hockey fan could want, esp. us Wings fans

and the best part of all: revenge against that prick Lemieux

also, it helped the team get over the hump mentally against the Avs and prepared them for the conference finals re-match

My favorite Championship is 2002, but nothing will beat those late-90's teams. Stevie, Shanny, Fedorov, Ozzie, Lidstrom, Murphy, DMac, Lapointe, Larionov, Kozlov, Draper, Maltby, Holmstrom, etc. I miss those guys.

I watched the whole first period yesterday of that video and I heard in the commentary that it was Kunuble's first NHL game being called up from Adirondack. What a memorable first game to get called up to the big dance!!!

Can't rewatch this enough, hopefully in the not so distant future the Detroit Red Wings are going to be that team again. You want us to dance? Fine, let's dance! Watching this team provided sooo much joy, god I miss those times .
