Cool idea for a group of themed articles. Honestly if I had to pick one game it would be that Game 1 vs. the Blackhawks but that's just me personally. The loudest I think it ever was in there and obviously the shock and excitement were mind-blowing. FYI yes I did think of that game before scrolling down to the goal

He downplays Mario a little bit on that Game 1 goal IMO. Some could call it just taking a chance. Lemieux says as much in the highlight video from that year, but to me it takes brass balls and great anticipation. Realizing Francis + Murphy probably equals a shot from the faceoff, then having the guts to act on it in a situation where you could give up a 2 on 1 (again, Lemieux admits as much) takes a winner.
