    I was there it was definitely in the top three. I have JT's OT winner in Philadelphia in 92 and Darris capping off Buffalo's comeback in 93 vs Philadelphia as the others. I am sure there are a few more I am forgetting but that 2000 game was rocking.

    My favorite part is the commercials. AOL Canada seems like the future.

    My biggest regret of lacrosse fandom is not going to that game.

    And yes, I too love seeing old commercials with the benefit of hindsight on things. That’s one thing I like about looking through old programs too.

    watched that on on TV.

    Molson Export Lacrosse, on Sportsnet...a genuine tier one cable network.

    we've come a long way since then, much of it in the wrong direction

    I watched on TV as well. It was a heartbreaker...but a fabulous game.

    What channel showed it in Rochester? I lived closer to Buffalo as a kid, so I didn't get the random Rochester stations that showed Amerks and Knighthawks games.

    The amazing things about that ending were:

    1. Old NLL rules where you could take the ball back in to your own crease. Ladoceur does that just as the timeout is called. You can't do that now. I remember guys passing the ball back to the goalie quite a bit under that rule.
    2. In a tie game with the cup on the line, Bartley pulls the goaltender for a 6 on 5. The only guys that touch the ball are Toth and Doyle at the top of the formation. That is a TON of trust right there in those 2 guys.
    3. Bartley has virtually no reaction when Toth scores that goal.

    Keep in mind too, that Toth wasn't supposed to be the one to take the shot. It was actually supposed to be Stroup, but I believe he was being guarded enough that Toth felt it was better to take the shot himself, and the rest is history.

    Hell, I can't remember back that far....I may still have it on VHS somewhere. It was likely WB16 or perhaps a Time Warner Cable channel.
