So much like the Buffalo game 5 from 2007. The Rangers were leading 1-0 late in the 3rd. Fedor Tyutin is a few strides away from the redline but he ices the puck. Buffalo wins the face-off and Chris Drury scores. Blair Betts takes a penalty in OT. Maxim Afinogenov scores early in OT. The Rangers didn't have much left in game 6 at the Garden.
The last crazy playoff game at the Garden was in 1997. Game 3 against Florida. The Rangers were up early 2-0. Florida scores the next 3. Luc Robitaille ties up the game with 18.9 seconds left in the 3rd. Esa Tikkanen scored in OT but the puck hit the camera in the net and bounced out. Video replay showed the puck hit the camera and it was a goal. They played for a few minutes before the stoppage in play allowed for the goal to be reviewed. Our seats were in section 402. There was a TV directly to the right in one of the luxury boxes. It clearly showed the puck was in the net. We knew before the players on the ice knew.
