If only we had won game #7. Looking back on it, hat fact always kind of lessened the spectacularness of the MNM to me.
I saw an interview with Sutter after this series was over. He mentioned if they had won they would have played Montreal, whom they had beaten a couple times that year or something like that. At any rate, he seemed very confident they would have done well vs. Montreal had they gotten to the finals.
To this day that game continues to be the absolute best sporting event I have ever attended, and it's not even close.
Mine was Game 6 of the 2008 Western Semis between the Sharks/Stars in Dallas, the one that went to four overtimes with the Stars winning the game and the series(not a Stars fan by any means, but it was a truly legendary game that I feel privileged to have witnessed), followed by game 7 of the 2004 Stanley Cup finals(Torts was my next-door neighbor when I lived in Tampa)
Best Blues Game I've been to was either this year's game 5 against the Sharks or game 4 against the Stars in 2001 when we swept. I'm a bit too young for the MNM or the sweep of the Hawks unfortunately.
