#2 – Statue Of Liberty
We head back to 2002, but this time to the Western Conference Finals where the Red Wings were up against the former Stanley Cup Champion, Colorado Avalanche. The Avalanche had just beaten the Detroit Red Wings in overtime in Game 5 and it seemed that the Red Wings would once again loss to their rivals in the Western Conference Finals.
In the First Period of Game 6 the unthinkable happened to Colorado. Steve Yzerman took a shot on net and Patrick Roy made a great save, but in an act of showboating he picked up his glove to show that he had the puck. The problem was that he did not have the puck and instead Brendan Shanahan knocked the puck into the net.
The Red Wings went on to win Game 6 and then Game 7 knocking out the Colorado Avalanche and sending them to the Wings to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
