i don't know how Adam Henrique's career is going to pan out but if he doesn't accomplish anything else in the NHL, he will always be remembered for the two series-ending OT goals that he scored in 2012.

Cam Connor. 2OT goal vs Leafs in '79 is his most significant claim to fame (unless his lifelong friendship with Rowdy Roddy Piper trumps the goal).

Although maybe a bit too good to be considered a role player, Marek Malik will only ever be remembered for scoring 1 goal. Same with Corey Tropp.

Doug Gilmour scored the game-winning goal in Game 6 of the 1989 finals, not McDonald. (McDonald scored the second Flames goal.)

In a cruel twist of fate he's probably most known for a "goal" he scored that didn't count. In Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final he appeared to score what could have been the cup clinching goal late in the 3rd period. Which, undoubtedly, would have been his claim to fame as a hockey player.
Gelinas scored the game-winner in the final game of the Conference Finals against the Sharks that year too. Had his shot in Game 6 of the Finals gone in he would have had the game-winning goals in all four series-deciding games.

The first two I think of are Brad May and Bill Lindsay.

What do they have in common?

Ray Bourque was the goat on both goals.

May I can understand how he got around Bourque. It was just one of those plays where the last thing in the world you are thinking about is Brad May pulling a "Mario" move on you. He was sort of reaching for the puck and it was one of those "bang-bang" plays that happened so fast. But as for Lindsay I can never understand how he walked around Bourque on that play. This is 1996, Bourque is a Norris finalist this year and it isn't as if he did a once in a lifetime move on Bourque like May did, it just seemed Lindsay simply just outworked and skated around him. Not something you saw with Bourque.

I know there was a lot of other things going on in this game in 1979 but if you mention the name Yvon Lambert I automatically think of Game 7 against the Bruins in overtime.
Ugh....still haunts me to this day. I know exactly where I was that day.

I missed the May goal, I was working at the time....but yeah, it happens from time to time. Hell, I saw a Bobby Orr own goal, so even the greatest can get chumped on occasion.

When years go by, will Dave Bolland be in the list with his last-minute-Cup-winning-goal?

When I think of Nystrom, I don't think of his goal against the Flyers to win the Cup. Instead, I think of one of the greatest fighters in NHL history, with lightning speed hands.

To each his own, I guess.

That being said, the guy scored four OT playoff goals in his career, if I'm not mistaken? So he wasn't just a one goal guy or a guy that should only be remembered for that goal.

They did retire his number. The other numbers they retired are Hall of Famers, so obviously, the Isles thought of him as something more than just a role player.

Fernando Pisani is probably most famous for his goal-scoring binge in the 2006 playoffs... But that OT shortie against Carolina stands out above the others.

Shortly after that season, he was diagnosed with colitis and struggled through another handful of seasons before retiring. A damn shame because he'll forever be remembered for that 'fluke' palyoff run but Oiler fans of the era will tell you that he was actually a very skilled defensive winger with good size and a great shot.

crazy how he got better with age

i only vaguely remembered whitney in the 90s when he was at best a 40 pt player for the sharks before having a few decent seasons in florida

i would have never believed that 10-15 years later the guy would be putting up 60-70 pts a year in his late 30s
