The goal is scored at 0:55 I was at this neutral site game at the Richfield Coliseum. It was the home of the Cleveland Lumberjacks minor league hockey farm team of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Mario Lemieux was day-to-day because of his health. He decided he'd play on Easter Sunday, April 3, 1994. His friend drove him up to Cleveland. He arrived an hour before game time. He scored a goal and two assists in a 6-2 win vs the Boston Bruins [Raymond Borque DNP]. This this regarded as one of his Top 10 Goals. I taped it on ABC produced by ESPN with Gary Thorne doing the play-by-play [better than most IMHO] and Bill Clement commentating. It really did look like everyone stood still on the ice and watch him score this goal. It was that impressive seeing it live. [Note the video quality is a result of not having access to my original tapes. I had this on youtube once before. It loses a significant amount of quality. But it's still watchable]. Thanks for watching!
