DETROIT --- Game 7 and three scoreless regulation periods and one OT in the 1996 Western Conference semi-finals between the Detroit Red Wings and the St Louis Blues. In the second overtime Steve Yzerman's scored a goal for the ages, his shot from the neutral zone advanced the Wings to the Conference finals. Detroit Fans who attended the game recall it as one of the loudest decibel levels on-record at Joe Louis Arena. Earlier this year Yzerman recalled the moment with ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, here's the moment in Yzerman's own words:

"It was a rolling puck I picked up in the neutral zone, I think that was the second overtime, and I remember thinking in the first overtime, 'I'm just going to start shooting the puck from wherever. I'm tired, and they're not calling penalties.'

"The defensemen were just wrapping us up. I wasn't getting a whole lot done, so I decided to start shooting all the time... I picked the puck up in the neutral zone, I think Murray Baron was the defenseman, and I thought, 'Just shoot it and try to get it past his feet and not hit him.' Sure enough, I found a clear path, and it found the top corner. It was kind of a lucky shot because I was just trying not to get it blocked. That was my only playoff overtime goal."
