I disagree. We went down early in that game and the Habs had a flicker of hope, but Richie slammed the door shut with that shift. As soon as he scored, it seemed everyone in the building knew we were gonna win. If that didn't happen and they stole that game, we'd have had to go back to their place and then potentially had a Game 7 at home. They already dispatched the Pens and Caps in that situation, their confidence would have been soaring so who knows what would've happened. Richie's goal was the series sealing play.
