10) CLAUDE LEMIEUX'S OT WINNER
May 5, 1986 - Game 3 of Wales Conference finals
Trailing Montreal 2-0 as the conference finals shifted to MSG, the underdog Rangers bombared Montreal rookie Patrick Roy in the third period and overtime, but couldn't break through. Finally, fellow Canadiens rookie Claude Lemieux beat John Vanbiesbrouck over his left shoulder to win the game and dash the Rangers' hopes of a Stanley Cup finals appearance. It was the Habs' only shot of overtime.
