Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

I know everyone chipped in, but without Claude Lemieux's magic, there would've been no cup.
His clutch goals are what I remember most.

So THAT'S why McKay's hat had no logo?! Hot damn, I spend years looking at my '95 Cup poster and wondering why his hat had that big blank spot in the middle.

Yeah it took re-watching the actual FOX game to see that and realize what happened to it.... had to figure they kinda really fast took off the Detroit logos and stuck ours on cursing the whole way :P

Lets also not forget Brylin falling back into the bench after they won game 4. Though not a particularly moving moment it was still hilarious


Lol, they showed a clip of it during the OT in Game 5 of the finals in 2000:

Lol, I always wondered that too. I remember Holik telling McKay to stand still(or something of that nature) when he got the Cup in 2000, because of him nearly fumbling it in 1995!

For me, it really was the entire experience, from the opening faceoff in Game 1 against Boston right through the final seconds of Game 4. I was lucky enough to be there for Rounds 3 and 4...me and a friend of mine (a Flyer fan) decided to buy 8-game strips, and suffice it to say that laying out that kind of money back then (don't remember how much exactly) was a very big deal.

If I had to pin it down to any one thing, what I remember most fondly is the way so many Devils fans came together. For so long no one really respected us, and in our entire (mostly sad) history to that point, only once did this team put up a regular season record that could truly be considered elite, and that had been the season before, in '93-'94. Although the Devils did play better down the stretch in '95, they still finished just 22-18-8 (5th seed), and although we all hoped for the best, how many Devils fans can REALLY say they expected that team to not only win it all, but do it in such dominant and exciting fashion, going 16-4? The magic carpet-ride, surreal feel of it all just made it such a blast. The ECF and SCF games were so much fun, in that everyone was having such a great time...it really felt like one big community, one big party, both in and outside the building, where perfect strangers were suddenly talking hockey and simply enjoying each other's company, sharing stories about the "old days" over beers and BBQ. I was lucky enough to run into two former high school buddies in the parking lot before Game 4, who were surrounded by some of the coolest Devils fans I've ever met...once they found it was my birthday, as soon as my beer was empty, a full one was in my hand before I could blink. I look back on those days and I miss them. Let's face it...a team doesn't gain new fans by losing, and with that '95 SC win a new (and needed) crop of Devils fans was born. Unfortunately that group, and the many who have since joined, have known mostly nothing but success...even with the recent hiccups and early-round eliminations, this team has enjoyed so much more long-term prosperity than most other NHL teams. And it's these relative newcomers who tend to lose sight of that too often, and forget to appreciate what Lou, Marty and many others have brought to this franchise.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

It was Peluso and Daneyko that was crying on the bench as the time was dwindling down to 0:00. It was a special moment seeing that on the Devils bench.
