I could only imagine if Neverson had written it:
The year was 1994. Tears streamed down the defeated and demoralized face of one impossibly young Martin Brodeur, who lay on the ice after having just given up Stephane Matteau's series-clinching, double-overtime wraparound goal in Game 7, the Eastern Conference Finals lost, the Stanley Cup to be won by Mark Messier's Rangers two weeks later. Perhaps still fresh in Brodeur's mind was also the Game 6 Guarantee, that saw Messier score not one, not twice, but THREE times to wrestle control of the series away from the Devils, who had taken a 2-0 lead in that pivotal Game 6, only to see Mark Messier and his merry men steal the dream, and carry that momentum all the way to Messier triumphantly thrusting the 1994 Stanley Cup - hockey's greatest prize - over his head on Garden ice.
Brodeur did some good stuff after Mark Messier and the Rangers won the 1994 Stanley Cup, like playing more games and winning more games than any other goalie, breaking records, winning three Cups and getting to two other Finals, so maybe you should check him out while you can. But just like, for all of his greatness and accomplishments, he will still be haunted by Games 6 and 7, Mark Messier, and the 1994 Stanley Cup Champion New York Rangers, you should not forget either.
