[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.]
Thats right. I remember the replays now. Jeopardy theme reminds me of another memorable game, (not at the garden or even a Ranger game but it was fun). It was a season or two right after the infamous Brett Hull cheating incident. I hate the Sabres (mainly because they blackout the games here in smAlbany). Pre season matchup between the Slugs and the Panthers in Binghamton. There was a questionable call (not a goal call) that was being reviewed and the Jeopardy theme was playing. The arena was dead silent and when the song ended....da, dada, dada, da, da. I stand up and yell at the top of my lungs, "What is 'No Goal, Alex'". The sabres fans were not very happy with me. I actually got boood pretty good. Then when it got quiet again, I yelled, "Brett Hull is THE MAN!"
