    4/24: 5 PM Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh (1997 Game 5 Eastern Conf. Quarters)
    4/28: 5 PM Detroit vs. Colorado (1997 Game 5 Western Conf. Finals)

    Other new Hockey programming come playoff time is the previously mentioned "The Tournament" and "Legends of Hockey", as well as the self-explanatory "Mark Messier's Leadership Camp", "Team Spirit" a special on Jordin and Terrence Tootoo and "Lord Stanley's Cup" a special on the Cup narrated by Denis Leary.

    At some point they or someone else should show (if they've got the tapes):

    1970 - Finals, Game 4: Boston vs. St. Louis
    1979 - Semifinals, Game 7: Montreal vs. Boston (sorry, Bruins fans!)
    1980 - Finals, Game 6: NY Islanders vs. Philadelphia
    1986 - Divison Finals, Game 7: Calgary vs. Edmonton
    1986 - Conference Finals, Game 6: St. Louis vs. Calgary
    1988 - Finals, Game 4 (the first one): Boston vs. Edmonton
    1993 - Finals, Game 2: Montreal vs. Los Angeles
    1994 - Conference Finals, Game 6: NY Rangers vs. New Jersey
    1996 - Conference Semis, Game 7: Detroit vs. St. Louis (even though it'll hurt yet again)

    And yes, they should play Game 6 of the '99 Finals between Dallas and Buffalo (sorry, Sabres fans!).

    You sure it's this game? The Avs won this game 6-0. (Detroit won the series though) :dunno:

    The night Colorado and New Jersey played Game 7 in 2001, ESPN Classic aired (earlier than the live hockey game), as part of a Colorado sports weekend, a Flyers-Rockies' playoffs game from 1978. First and only time I have seen Classic do that game.

    What a brilliant idea. They should show the Avs and Detroit game 5 2002 that game was amazing. Or even game 4 the avs at florida the best goaltending duel of all time imo.

    A bit of an unusual choice. The biggest reason to show this game has been eliminated with Mario making his comeback. Flyers dominated the game, highlighted by Brind'amour scoring two shorthanded goals in under a minute.

    Well they're not perfect, and it's airing a month in advance, give them 2 or 3 weeks to fix it.

    Three things I haven't seen replayed but would like to:

    1) Anything between Montreal and Quebec in the 80's.

    2) Flames-Oilers playoff series from 1991, any or all.

    3) Devils-Rangers, 1994, Game 7


    Three things I've seen several times and recommend highly:

    1) Islanders-Caps, 1987, Game 7, 4 overtimes

    2) Rangers-Islanders, 1984, Game 5

    3) Kings-Leafs, 1993, Game 7 (sorry, Buds fans)

    They need to show:

    1994 - Sabres vs. Devils - Game 6

    Hasek vs. Brodeur
    4 overtimes

    Hasek stops 70 shots in a 1-0 shutout.

    One of the most outstanding displays of goaltending, on both ends, in NHL playoff history.

    I sure am glad a 5 on 3 OT winner off a stick went off the ice for half a second and a puck over the glass penalty will save us from those boring extended overtime games where nobody is scoring.
