Game six of the 1999 Stanley Cup Final between the Dallas Stars and Buffalo Sabres began on June 19,1999 but by the wee hours of June 20th, and after a controversial goal scored by Brett Hull in triple-OT, the Dallas Stars were Stanley Cup Champs!
I remember watching the game all alone in my living room, as my wife and daughter had given up and went to bed.
When Hully scored at 14:51 of the third overtime I jumped so high off the couch I hit the ceiling fan and woke everyone up. I stayed up the rest of the night and listened to radio coverage of the celebration. Hard to believe it was 22 years ago. It’s time for another Stars’ Cup Championship!
