We saw it as a "Passing of the Torch"

this is def the biggest game since 94' imho
It was a blatant hook, but at the time, even JD referred to it as a "legal hook" because of the fact that Lindros kept his feet moving. Seems so ridiculous now, but at the time I remember being so irate that they allowed him to waterski on Mess's back and score that empty netter to finish us off.
