Hey, thanks a lot for posting that! One of the all-time great moments at the NVMC.

It's funny you posted that right after a discussion of Hickey maybe playing an important role in this series. Mike McEwen was on D on that Isles' team, and he had a similar build and skillset as Hickey (Hickey may end up being a better all-around player though). When the Isles were losing 3-1 late in the 3rd period of that game, McEwen scored a goal to get them within 1 and set up the very late tying goal. Then in the clip you posted it was McEwen who made the block on a dangerous PIT scoring chance and then made the great pass to Tonelli to start the sequence for the winning goal. I've always considered McEwen the unknown Islander that saved the dynasty.

Karma?
