Favorite All Time Ranger Moment

What’s your favorite play of all time by a Ranger? Personally I’m going to have to say Wayne Gretzky’s last NHL goal was one of my favorite moments of all time, I caught this show Fan’s Most Wanted and they feature some of the greatest goals, moments, and plays of all time… Pretty cool show, has anyone else seen it?

One play? Hmm, Leetch's spin-o-rama for the first goal in Game 7 against NJ

1993-94 vs. the Blackhawks. Steve Larmer has come back from injury weeks early to play his last game in the old Chicago Stadium before it's torn down. Late in the game he is awarded a penalty shot.

He bears down on Eddie Belfour and, when he's just past the hash-marks, RIPS a slapshot over Belfour's shoulder. The crowd went insane, cheering for their old hero one more time.

Steve Larmer was too tough to deke.

From the NY Times:

Quote:
Steve Larmer's only goal was to play. Larmer, an 11-year Chicago veteran, was not supposed to be back on the ice for at least another three weeks, his broken right pinky still swollen and stiff. But this would be his first trip home since a trade to New York on Nov. 2, and his last chance to play in legendary Chicago Stadium, which will be replaced after this season.

Keenan got his victory -- a 5-1 Rangers' triumph over the Blackhawks. And Larmer got a Chicago Stadium moment he will never forget. A Larmer Penalty Shot

With Larmer and Mark Messier on a breakaway late in the third period, Chicago's Steve Smith threw his stick in desperation as he tripped and fell to the ice. The sliding stick interfered with Larmer's rush to the net, and earned the Rangers a penalty shot, which Larmer took.

The crowd stood and roared -- roared for Larmer, not goalie Ed Belfour -- as Larmer rushed down the ice and beat Belfour with a shot from about 20 feet out. It was the fifth Ranger goal of the evening and it was, quite simply, the perfect finishing touch on what was an emotional game for the entire Ranger team.

A few years ago, I asked if anybody happened to have this game on video or if they had a clip of that moment on their computer. No-one was able to help then (though I think it was Fletch who looked for it, thanks!). Anyone got one now?

Who would have thought that this trade would = THE CUP.

March 21, 1994 – New York Rangers obtain: (1) LW STEPHANE MATTEAU and RW BRIAN NOONAN from Chicago for RW TONY AMONTE and the rights to LW MATT OATES. (2) RW GLENN ANDERSON, the rights to D SCOTT MALONE and Toronto’s fourth-round pick in 1994 Entry Draft (D ALEXANDER KOROBOLIN) from Toronto for RW MIKE GARTNER. (3) C CRAIG MacTAVISH from Edmonton for C TODD MARCHANT.

If the moment isn't winning the Cup for anyone who was old enough to see and comprehend it they aren't all there.

The other great moments for me were Matteau, Stemkowski, the beginning of Game 3 against the Bruins in '72, the return of Eddie, the first time I saw Brad Park play and my first game in person at the previous Garden. I'm sure I'm forgetting some others.

one of my favorite moments was right after the lockout, when the rangers beat the devils at the garden for the first time in something like twenty games, i was there and it was like 4-1 or something... I was going absolutely insane.

I'm gonna stay away from the obvious ones (i.e. everything 1994 related).

For me, Gretz's last game was a defining moment in my life. Just today, I decided to watch my VHS recording of the game...and I'll be honest, I'm not ashamed to say that I cried when I saw him skate around the rink 3 times before finally retiring to the lockerroom after the game.

Just looking at last year, another unsung moment that I'll remember for a long time was Ryan Callahan's effort (shorthanded I think?) at the end of game 5 against the devils...just unreal, and the ranger fans at the rock stood on their feet and cheered while he killed off 30 seconds singlehandedly.


Btw, does anyone have a video of this?

Dawes helped, as I recall.

Why?

Can you guarantee the Rangers win the cup with Gartner?

Anderson scored the game winning goal in a Stanley Cup finals game...

That's it, SoS...

it's impossible to tell what the team would've done without those moves. We can all say that the teamed was destined to win and that the will of guys like Leetch, Richter, Mess, Beuk, Graves, Larmer, Kovalev, Zubov and others would've brought the Cup home, but hey, you never know and I think we should be happy with the outcome. His moves after 1994 when he tried to replicate what he did in 1994 were more troubling - bringing in Kurri, in particular, was the most painful move of my recent memory. But it's hard to argue with trades that resulted in the Cup being one - the first in 54 years.

1994 Rangers vs Kings. I was sick as hell with the flu and stayed up to watch the game. Game was tight tied in the third. Not sure if it was the 2rd or OT but Amonte gets pulled down on a break-away...penalty shot. He gets stopped. Messier ends up scoring the winner in OT.

Worst Ranger moment: Trading Tony Amonte.

Watching Jagr break all the records to become the highest scoring player in Rangers history during his first full season in a blueshirt.

If Matteau doesn't count (and I think I went absolutely nuts when that went in) then I'm taking Tikkanen's goal camera goal in OT vs. the Panthers in '97 was classic.... and for the record, if you believe it or not, my dad(the man who made me a Ranger fan) called it earlier just saying "Tikkanen is going to win this for us." I didn't believe him... stupid me.

The final faceoff in the '94 finals vs. the Canucks has got to be the best moment for any Rangers fans who were there or anywhere else. I really don't see how anything else could compete.

I agree and just thinking about it gives me chills, but the moment I picked has sentimental value... and i didn't include the '94 run. Nothing compares to it.

Actually it was Brian Noonan that scored the GW in game 7. Messier was given credit for it.
