What's the best game you have attended?

Has anyone attended any major or famous NHL games over the years? Stanley Cup Finals? Milestones, etc?

I was at the power failure game in the 1988 Cup Finals with Edmonton at Boston.

And Marc D'Amour's lone game as a Flyer, took place in Boston Garden.

When I was a kid I was at Game 3 of the Smythe div. finals...I'm pretty sure the Oilers won 4-2 and then swept the Flames in 4 games.

Recently, the best game I've attended was the 4-3 OT win vs. the Canucks. Man it was nuts at Rexall.

I was at the game when Gretzky scored number 802. I was also at the game where Robitaille scored his 500th. And the best game I was at recently was when the Kings eliminated Detroit a couple of years ago.

I was at the World Cup semis in '96 when Canada beat Sweden in double Ot on a goal by Theo Fleury.

I was also at the Phantoms Calder Cup clincher in '97

2002 Stanley Cup Finals game 3. Triple overtime. Even though the Hurricanes lost it was an incredible experience. All the playoff games that year were awesome, but obviously that one stands out. (Although nothing will ever top the 2002 Appalachian St. / Furman football game.)

1. Game 7 of the 2003 Cup Finals. All those years of being a Devils fan in the vast sea of Rangers and Islander fans that is Long Island came to fruition.

2. Game 1 of the 2003 Cup Finals

3. Game 5 of the 2003 Cup Finals

Game 3 of the 2002 playoffs MTL vs BOS where Boston led something like 3-1 then in the 3rd period we came back to win it 5-3. Simply amazing, everyone was going wild and I think I lost my voice temporarily even for a couple of days after the game I sounded like I smoked 20 cigars simultaneously.

The best game I've attended recently was the 4-2 Canucks win over Detroit last week, when Daniel scored all 4 goals :p

Game 6 of the 2002 playoffs between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. It was like if we have just won the Stanley Cup.

Game 4 of the 2002 Playoffs - Isles vs. Leafs: 4 goals in the final 6 minutes of the game which was topped off with the penalty shot by Shawn Bates to win it with 2 minutes left. I never heard the Nassau Coliseum that loud before in my life. It got to a point where I couldn't hear myself talk. It was a memory that will be truly etched in my memory for a long, long time

Was at the Flames games when Lanny notched career goal 500 and career point 1000.


Best game the San Jose/Calgary playoff game 7 Flames lost in overtime. Outcome wasn't great but that was a very exciting game and had that game 7 aura hanging over it from the get go.

2000 SCF Game 5 Devils vs Stars. The Devils eventually lost 1-0 in the 3rd overtime, but I have never seen two goalies play out of their minds like that in such a big game and for 6 periods! The Devils have been in some other long 0-0 overtime games, but this one had all the scoring chances you could possibly want. It made it even more exciting, because if Holik could have just scored on one of his 7,000 chances, we would have seen the cup that night.

February 19th, 1999:

Theo Fluery becomes the Flames all-time leading point getter agianst the Ducks. To make it even more memorable I got to go down to the dressing room after to personally congratulate him. He was and probably still is my favorite player of all-time so it was really cool.
