I'll also throw in for March 26.
Although this year one game that was really exciting to watch was that game against Pitt where Alfie had the game winner with less than a second left in OT. Detroit takes the 2-0 lead and you feel good, then they let Pitt score 3 straight and you kind of think, "well they've given games away all year." Then Detroit scores 2 straight and you feel good again cuz you think they just came back and there's no way they give it up again. Then Pitt ties it with like 4 minutes left or something and your stomach just drops. And then the PP in OT for Pitt, then Alfie scores with less than a second to win it. Amazing roller coaster of a game.
Also, when it was tied, Legwand took that stupid 5 min penalty to guarantee the Penguins a PP for the rest of regulation. Just a great win, especially in a year where every win counted and they were without their two best players.

The 7-0 squashing of the Avs in 2002. It was the pinnacle for my love of the organization. I've lived in Colorado since 1995 and often had rivalries with the Av fans. When the Wings murdered the Avs 7-0 it was, in a sense, a victory in the final battle.

For me it's game 6 2002 WCF vs the Avalanche because it just demonstrated just how dominant Hasek really was and Roy's gaffe was such a beautiful moment. Even better that it virtually cost the Avs another shot at the cup. I just remember being so elated with joy after seeing us stick it to Colorado. That series and that rivalry had so much passion and intensity and I can still hear Gary Thorne's voice as Shanny put the puck past a showboating Roy.
And that was after Shanahan missed a wide open net in the final minute of game 5... only to lose on a Forsberg OT goal that should have been whistled offside. I had trouble sleeping that night thinking we had blown our chance and it was over. The way we came back in game 6 and 7, to this day, it's still my favorite playoff series of all time.
