I'm not sure the correlation is all that strong. Brett Hull's skate-in-crease goal was a game 6. Bob Nystrom's iconic goal was a game 6. Theo Fleury slid across the ice in game 6. Gretzky's non-high-stick was in a game 6. Bob Baun scored on a broken leg in game 6. The Hawks rallied in 17 seconds in game 6.

I think the really memorable ones are simply the decisive games. Hockey series really are a war, and the sudden-death aspect of overtime brings that stress to a boil. Most legendary hockey goals are in OT, regardless of which game.
