While it's not a Canadiens game, game 4 of the 96 finals, the 1-0 quad-OT win against the Panthers. Vanbiesbrouck actually made more game-stealing saves in that one, but Roy matched him save for save.

Games 6 and 7 against the Devils in 2001. The only time he & Brodeur went head-to-head in the playoffs.
Best game I've ever seen him play too. I believe it was his first game back after an 8 game suspension for slashing.
