I think you are just projecting your own standards on this contest. Matteau Matteau was a historic moment in Rangers history right behind the guaranteed win and "this one will last a life time." Messier must have the most epic Cup acceptance mad happy cackle in all of history. If you were to put up the 94 cup run versus the 2010 run, 94 would handily destroy it. An OT cup winner is pretty special though so I would not think less of its historical significance just because it didn't happen with an explosive exclamation mark of broadcast elation.
edit: and vs Brodeur? It was a fluky goal regardless of who the goalie was. It's not like Matteau juked the pants off of Fatso here.
Kane sniped the top corner on his shot
- from a truly awful angle - but Leighton just was not expecting a shot from there.
Sorry to be a nit picking pain, but it was through Leighton's legs. Imagine what it would look like if we were both correct!
