Watching tonight’s hockey game got me reminiscing about the days of my youth, in the 90s. My best pal and I would play street hockey with other people in the neighborhood, one of whom was a major St. Louis Blues fan. I remember one time in the mid-90s (I’m not exactly sure which year), his heckling us when the Blues won a big game in the playoffs, in overtime in the wee hours of the night. I thought the Blues had won the cup that year, but checking the archives, I’ve found that they never won it in the 90s. So, clearly, it wasn’t a Stanley Cup winning goal, but perhaps a series ender? I want to know the guy’s name who scored the goal, and although I know the details I’m providing are fairly vague, all I can do is offer one more: the guy had an “uncommon” name, like Guy or something.
However, having scanned old Blues’ rosters from the approximate time period, the only “Guy” I can find is named “Guy Carboneau,” and that wasn’t the guy. I’m sure I’ll know it if I hear (er, see) it, though.
So, again, the facts:
*Mid-90s playoff game which the Blues won (somewhere between 93 and 98)
*Possibly a series ender
*At least one overtime (probably multiple overtimes–the game ended very late here in the east)
*The guy had an “uncommon” name; at least one that I found rather uncommon for the Philadelphia 'burbs
Oh, and thanks!
