Popular myth regarding McDonald, Killer actually got the winning goal for the Flames in the Cup clinching game in 1989. McDonald scored an important goal, but it was not the winner. McDonald's goal made it 3-2, Gilmour's made it 4-2 and the Habs (Russ Courtnall?) scored late to make it 4-3.

Yeah but I find that strange too. I have to wonder, what would a Flame even have liked about Game 6 of the Cup final? The only time in the last 23 years they've been out of the first round and in a game where they could have won the Cup they lose in overtime and have a controversial "no goal" call go against them in the 3rd period. It is similar to a Leaf fan saying their favourite game is Game 6 of the 1993 semis vs. the Kings.

^^^ Oh thats right to, my mistake Phil. Its just so memorable I guess in the minds eye one "imagines" it a little differently. The ageing veteran and all-round great guy McDonald, running practically on empty after a long & illustrious career scoring the Cup Winner in a Game 6 (or better yet in like the 3rd OT Period of a Game 7). Retiring immediately thereafter, his legend now truly secure.

That would have been high on my list, but fact is I WAS there. It seemed like the fights went on all night, fitting that Mac won it in OT. We sat in our seats forever after the game, until the ushers finally gently said you don't gotta go home but you cant stay here. One hell of a game.

Wow, good question. I can't pick one alone.

Game 8 of the Summit Series.

Game 1 of the 1967-68 SC finals to see Glen Hall against the Canadiens.

The game Red Berenson scored 6 against the Flyers.

TBH I cheered against EDM all playoffs that year. They got in due to the loser point and I hated that. But I some of the "best" moments in hockey for me come from that run. Best series/entire playoffs changing hit. Torres v. Michalek. Best Crowd. Best 3-on-5 Penalty kill. With a definite Honourable Mention to a top 20 performance of some of the Best Goaltending. Right up there with the Anaheim run of 2003. Giggy's 60+ save performance that made me miss my First Leafs playoff game in 20yrs. Kariya getting up from the Stevens hit to score two goals.

Some of the nights I'd love to see.

Lemieux's 5-in-5
Sittler's 10pts
Gretzky's 39-in-50
Game 6 2013 Leafs win Stanley Cup .

Red Army - Oilers in 85. The "Unstoppable Oilers" not so unstoppable.

DRW - Phlyers 97, Game 1. "Who's afraid of the Big Bad Flyers?"

This may seem like a stupid one, but in the late nineties when the Wings were on top of the world, the Joe would be packed with thousands of fans to watch the game on the screen while the club was on the road. Corny as it sounds, I would have loved to have watched a road game from the Joe with a few thousand of my closest friends....

When did Gary Bettman attend his first game? I'd go to that one and push him down the stairs.

My personal top three
1980 Miracle on Ice

1979 Too Many Men

1972 Henderson Scores for Canada!

(at least I got to watch the first two on live TV; too young in '72)

Actually McDonald's goal made it 2-1. Killer scored in the third period to extend the lead to 3-1. Rick Green scored on a floater where Claude Lemieux interfered with Vernon to close the gap, then Gilmour added an empty-netter with just over a minute left to seal the deal.
Nevertheless McDonald's goal was a HUGE momentum swing coming as it did after a Flames PK, Lanny jumping out of the box to score. Such a great pass by Nieuwendyk. All due to Lemieux flopping at the other end of the ice.

2014 cup finals, then I'd bet on it at the beginning of the year.

But only going back in time...hmm, so many good games to choose from. I'd pick Habs vs Red Army

Important to remember this good piece of advice about time travel:

If your travelling through the future & you see some guy passing
you heading into the past, probably best not to make eye contact.

Tuesday, Mar 19, 1929.

Game 1, semi-finals, Bruins vs. Canadiens.

Top 2 teams that year, get to see Thompson vs. Haineworth, Shore vs. Morenz & Joliat, Mantha vs. Clapper & Weiland.

Would just love to be in pre-depression Boston, illegal whiskey & Cuban cigars in the new Boston Garden.

The Miracle On Ice game was not broadcast live in the US. It was in Canada. The game had been over for about an hour when it was broadcast in the US.

I guess the following and last game against Finland was live? Must have steered up something that USSR-game, eh?

Okey, but if it's a one-way deal you'd better be a recluse so you wont miss everybody being gone.

rest your elbow on the door with part of it outside as your driving or it'll turn into a fossil.

Being a huge Roy fan it would either be the final game of the Cup finals for the 93 or 01 season.

The top moment for a non-Roy game would be the same where Mario scored that awesome goal in the finals against Minny.
