Alumni flashback: Patrick Roy’s infamous “Statue of Liberty” (Video)

It’s the goal that Patrick Roy will never live down, and no one will ever let him forget. Game 6 in the 2002 Stanley Cup Playoffs, in the closing moments of a scoreless first period, Steve Yzerman had a great scoring chance on Roy, who ended up stoning him on the play. The Red Wings got the puck right back, cycled around the zone and took it right back to the net, again by Yzerman. Roy appeared to make a second great stop, and in flashy fashion, went to hold the “puck” up in his glove; problem was that it wasn’t actually in his glove. It slipped under him and skittered towards the goal as he got to his skates, allowing Brendan Shanahan to fly in and poke it into the goal. Another defining moment in the playoff history between these two teams.
