They were playing the "Jeopardy" theme while the replays were shown on Gardenvision during the lengthy review. Referees didn't announce the goal to the crowd via cordless microphone back then, so they addressed the play directly to captain Mark Messier (and Gretzky); first relative quiet... then CELEBRATION!!! IIRC, some of the Panthers scuffled with the Rangers before everyone went back to their respective dressing rooms.

by Sam Rosen:

"Still no word. Still no word... RANGERS WIN!!!"
[EDIT: Forgot to add - EVEN former analyst JD didn't believe the shot went in until he saw the net cam view, the puck came at the viewer on the screen, and the hardness of the shot shifted the viewing angle ever so slightly.]
