Stephane Matteau's goal in the Eastern Conference Finals back in 1994 etched his name into Rangers immortality. Now, 25 years later, he recalled that famed moment he jumped on the ice and sent New York to the Stanley Cup.
"Everything was in slow motion, I remember that," he told SNY. "I jumped on the ice and I didn't have a plan. A lot people ask me if I had a plan, I didn't have a plan. A lot of people want to make it like a great goal, but it was one of the luckiest goals I scored in my career."
Looking back at the tape, luck was definitely on Matteau's side as he lifted a puck from basically behind the net to get past Devils G Martin Brodeur. But that goal gave the Rangers a chance to shock the world, winning the 1994 Stanley Cup.
