For the longest time, Alexander Selivanov's overtime game winner in Game 3 of the 1996 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals would be at the tops of this list.
In front of 25,945 fans in the dome currently know as Tropicana Field (home of the Rays), the Flyers and Lightning thrilled the NHL playoff record crowd (which would be broken again by the Lightning in Game 4) by battling to a 4-4 tie headed into overtime.
The Lightning's play-by-play voice, Larry Hirsch, nervously relayed a story about his wife telling him that Brian Bellows would get the O.T. game winner in Game 2. Sure enough, Bellows did. Hirsch called his wife again and she said, "Don't worry, Selivanov will get the game winner." Hirsch then said, "If she's right, I'm taking my wife to Vegas."
What followed was magic for the Tampa Bay Lightning fans as Selivanov put in a rebound to seal the Game 3 victory and a 2-1 series lead for the Bolts over the top-seeded Flyers.
Hirsch exploded on the call, "SELIVANOV! SELIVANOV! SELIVANOV! HE DID IT! HE DID IT! HE DID IT! YES SIR! I'M TAKING MY WIFE TO VEGAS!!!"
Unfortunately for the Bolts, it would be the last playoff win they had for awhile as Tampa Bay would lose three straight to fall in the series 4-2.
