Surely something better should be Nik's greatest playoff play in 20 years in the playoffs.
I don't care if bad press went Cloutier's way, much worse press would have gone the Wings' way if it was never scored and the deficit became 0-3. That goal was the make and break of that night (scored in any other fashion would have made the Nucks less deflated and more driven) and the next several months.
