Happy Anniversary.

Here are some highlights of game 7 to refresh your memory:

You do realize that if they actually followed the age-old rule that a puck crossing the line is a goal, the Flames would be champs and there would be no game 7, of course?

The Lightning's "championship" is as phony as a 3-dollar bill.

Just a little bitter, eh? :D

Eh, the Flames had plenty of chances to score in OT of game 6 at home to win the cup -- and then they had all of game 7 to make up for it.

Perhaps they got screwed, but rise above it!

They never did conclusively determine that the puck did completely cross the line. The angle that ABC produced did have the puck in the air. And I did once see a picture taken from the goal line that showed the puck in the air over the goal line, but not actually passing it completely.

Do you still blame Billy Buckner for '86 Series as well?

Nah, I don't blame Buckner at all. It's Schiraldi that screwed that one up.

But it's not just the phantom goal. Tampa Bay had a disproportionate amount of power plays compared to anyone else in the playoffs (something like a 3-1 ratio over Calgary). You can't tell me that other teams chose to all of a sudden play dirty against the Lightning. The officiating was routinely one-sided throughout.

Nah hes the one who blames all the Cubs misfortunes in the past 97 years on Bartman.

Must've been American refs. :D

and Hulls skate was in the crease.

Maybe so...but that was game six...what happened to the Sox in game 7? Did they not have another chance to win?

Just like the Cubs/Bartman game 6. What about Game 7?

Thanks for opening old wounds. I'll have to drink for a week to suppress that memory again.

Calgary couldn't score clutch goals when they needed to. End of story.
