^^^I always say when describing that Cup-winning game, "It was the loudest sound I have ever heard humans make!".
First of all, the game was on a sweltering (90 degrees plus F) Saturday afternoon. Nassau Colosseum is not suitable for that kind of heat. Secondly, the Isles took a 3-1 lead into the third period but quickly squandered that lead on goals in the first two minutes. The last 18 minutes of regulation and the entire OT was end-to-end rushes from both teams. Billy Smith made save after save to keep us in it before Bobby Nystrom, an original Isle, finally beat Pelle Lindbergh on a brilliant pass from John Tonelli. BEDLAM!!!
Easily, the most excitement I've ever experienced at a sporting event!
