I just don't think the goal deserved that kind of celebration where you blow past your teammates and slide to center ice.

If I was an Oilers fan I might be singing a different tune, who knows.
It was only huge because they legitimately tied it just before that and somehow had the goal waived off. So they went from being high about tying it to super low and thinking they're about to lose with a faceoff with 10 seconds left to the rookie scoring the big goal with under 6 seconds. It's not a "huge goal" in the grand scheme of things but to a super young team trying to improve on consecutive terrible years, against the defending SC champs, it probably felt huge to an 18 year old kid.
