It's No Goal night on NHL Network

I've been loving this "Raising the Cup" marathon every night on NHL Network for the last couple of weeks. Each night at 8, the network is showing a repeat broadcast of the clinching game of the Stanley Cup finals. This week, we've been on 1995-99. So what does that mean? 

Yep, brace yourself. Tonight at 8 will be Game Six of the 1999 finals. Stars vs. Sabres from then-Marine Midland Arena.

No idea which broadcast it will be, although most of them have been the CBC feed. Whoever is on the mic, it will be worth DVRing and not just for the Brett Hull moment at 1:40 in the morning. I'll want to relive all three of those overtimes. 

Remember that defenseman and current assistant James Patrick clanged one off the crossbar in the second OT? Or that it was a 1-1 game with Dominik Hasek and Ed Belfour locked in quite a duel? Goals were by Jere Lehtinen in the first period (terrible goal given up by Hasek) and Stu Barnes in the second. Tight, tight affair. Crazy night.
