"Thank goodness it's over!!!"

I uploaded this because the only clips on YouTube at the time were ESPN broadcasts. Unfortunately this is sourced from a RealVideo (remember those?), but nothing beats the hometown call of Jim Jackson, Gary Dornhoefer, and Steve Coates. UPN 57, we hardly knew ye! If anyone has this in better quality, please post.

Keith Primeau scores the OT winner at 12:01 of the 5th overtime period to tie the series at 2 games apiece, sending the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins back to Philadelphia for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Flyers ultimately won the next two games to take the series, but then lost a devastating 7-game series to New Jersey in the Eastern Conference Finals.

This game was the longest NHL game in modern history, falling short only to games played in 1933 and 1936.
