Goals do not get much bigger than Game 7 of the ECF in OT to take the series
, much less to take that opportunity away from Toronto who thought they had a legitimate chance to win their first cup since..... well we all know since when. And I think that says enough that we all know. As much as we recognize that hockey media revolves around Toronto, I don't know if we recognize enough what that series did for our profile and what that goal did to Leafs fans. It was an absolute dagger. I have an incredibly difficult time saying the greatest goal of our history is a goal in a series in which we didn't win, but the goal that clinched the East for us in 2002 was as big as any scored in 05-06.
Forgive me if I'm wrong, as I was like 8 at the time, but wasn't that Game 6? I thought every series en route to the Finals that run was six games...
