May 27, 1994: Stephane Matteau scores in the second overtime of Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Final to give the Rangers a 2-1 win against the Devils. The Rangers advance to the Stanley Cup Final against Vancouver.

The Rangers nearly win in regulation but Valeri Zelepukin ties it 1-1 with 7.7 seconds left in the third period.

Matteau's goal immortalized by Rangers broadcaster Howie Rose's call -- "Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!" -- comes on a wraparound at 4:24 of double overtime against goalie Martin Brodeur, the NHL's rookie of the year that season.

Matteau also scored in double overtime of Game 3 against the Devils. New Jersey, though, rallied to a take a 3-2 series lead. That led to Mark Messier's guaranteed victory at the Meadowlands in Game 6, and then Matteau's clincher in Game 7 at Madison Square Garden.

The Rangers win their first Stanley Cup since 1940 by defeating the Canucks in seven games.
