That night the Ottawa Senators were visiting the Toronto Maple Leafs and after regulation time and overtime, the game was tied 2 -2.
Daniel Alfredsson scored on the first ever shootout attempt for Ottawa.
Both Jason Allison and Eric Lindros missed on Toronto's attempts.
On Ottawa's third attempt Dany Heatley scored giving Ottawa the world's first NHL shootout victory.
Here's hoping Ottawa can start the post lockout on another high note.
