10 greatest games

The Flyers just released a 10 Greates Games box set. I think this would be a neat thing for the Blues to do. What games would you put on it?

I can think of a couple of obvious choices.

Monday Night Miracle
The game in 2000 that we came back from 5 goals down in the 3rd to beat Toronto (norris division )

What other games would some of you older fans throw in there?

Blues elimination of Belfour and the Blackhawks in the PO's.....when Eddie goes balastic smashing his stick on the goal post.

Berenson scoring 6

Hully's 50th goal in 50 games

any game featuring brawls with Durbano, Battleship Kelly, Gassoff, etc.

Courtnall goes turtling....and earns the Blues a 5 minute power-play and an epic come-from-behind victory over the Kings in the playoffs.

The brawl with The Flyers, in which players went into the stands (1972?). Red Berenson's 6 goal, 7-point game against The Flyers (8-0) in 1968-69 I can't remember which game it was, but they scored 9 goals.

You beat me to it, with the famous brawl in Philly. What a game!
I still remember Al Arbour coaching the last period in his t-shirt, and
with his head stitched up.

Do not have any idea what game it was, but I would love to see the game where Unger beat the crap out of Dave Schultz.

this needs to get done... I would buy that immediately (or ask for it from someone).

The Blues have won Game 7 in OT three times, so any of those games would likely merit consideration. Although I doubt the film from the first two (1968, 1972) has survived, so it would have to be Turgeon defeating Phoenix in 1999.

I recall the 1999 game against Phoenix as one of the most glorious outbursts of joy in my Blues-rooting fandom. Definitely a top-10 pick.

I would also mention (although I think we actually tied one and lost one) the home-and-home against Chicago in March 1991 when we were the two top regular season teams and Stevens fought Manson as a highlight to multiple bench-clearers over that Saturday and Sunday (The St.Patrick's Day Massacre). Another reason the Hawks will always occupy the first 1,764 spots on my hatred list, followed by NJ at 1,765.

Isn't it just glorious - jawdroppingly, there-is-a-God glorious - at how much suffering Hawks fans have to endure? I dance merrily in their pain. I hope they suck for a thousand years. I hope Wirtz lives forever.

That one is still fresh in my memory. I remember the day of and the day after.

I can't quite share your enthusiasm, games with them just aren't the same without some hard-nosed talented players on their team.

Honestly I really would have enjoyed Belfour and CuJo sticking with their respective teams throughout their careers. We'd have had a ton of great matchups between the two.

In no particular order, 10 of these 13:

-- October 11, 1967 (the first game in Blues history; don't know if it's available)
-- November 7, 1968 (Red Berenson's 6-goal game; don't know if it's available)
-- The brawl in Philadelphia
-- April 14, 1981 (playoffs vs. Pittsburgh; Mike Crombeen scores in 2nd OT to win series)
-- May 12, 1986 (The Monday Night Miracle)
-- The night Brett Hull first notched 50 in 50
-- April 12, 1991 (playoffs vs. Detroit; 298 PIM. 'Nuff said.)
-- April 25, 1993 (playoffs vs. Chicago; Janney scores in OT to complete the sweep)
-- The Joseph/Cheveldae brawl
-- February 26, 1994 (Blues 11, Ottawa 1 ... need I say more?)
-- April 27, 1998 (the Courtnall incident mentioned above, where the Blues scored 4 times on the 5-minute major)
-- May 4, 1999 (Turgeon's OT goal completes the comeback from 3-1 down to win the series)
-- November 29, 2000 (the 5-goal comeback vs. Toronto)

The back-to-back games vs. Chicago in 1991 would also be a good choice. I'd nominate October 19, 1978 (the night Gassoff's #3 went to the rafters), but I'd just want the ceremony when that happened; the Blues went on to get routed by Boston 7-3 as part of an 0-8-1 start to the year.

Honorable mention:
-- January 4, 1994 (Blues rally from down 4-0 just into the 2nd period to tie Detroit 4-4)
-- April 14, 1994 (Shanahan sliced open by Tkachuk for 40 stitches, returns to beat the hell out of KT)
-- November 14, 1996 (Blues tie Rangers 1-1 in Keenan's 1st game vs. his old team; it looked and felt every bit like playoff hockey)

November 29, 2000 (the 5-goal comeback vs. Toronto)

I have that game on DVD(copied from my VHS tape) if anybody is interested in trading for some other classic Blues games.

I am as big of a Garry Unger fan as there is, but unless they fought more than once Unger never beat the crap out of Schultz at least not in the clip that I saw.

A couple of more games to add

The Playoff game vs the Pens where Mike Crombeen score the winner

The game in the early 90's where the Blues and Wings got into a Brawl less than one minute in a Cujo and Tim Cheveldae went at center ice.

The 90-91 Playoffs vs Detroit game 5- This game set a record for PIM's in a Playoff game between two teams and began the Blues comeback from 3-1 down in this series. On a sad note this is the laast time I can remember getting the best of those ****** when it counted.

The April 14 1994 game where Shanny beat the **** out of Tkachuk was the last regular season game played at the old Barn.

Can't remember the year, but wasn't there a playoff game where Garth Butcher beat the snot out of then Red Wing Randy McKay?


That was cool.

I don't have any links, clips, etc., to go on, so you could be right. It's just the way I remember it, but being older than dirt, my memory is suspect.

This is splitting hairs on my part but the clip I saw was a draw. give Unger credit though he showed huge heart just going with Schultz
