Matteau, Matteau, Matteau!!!

16 years ago tonight...



...i was at a party at my friend's house senior year of high school when Matteau entered his name into Ranger lore. We went freakin' nuts.

...where were you?

...Sleepover a a friends house (I was 9)...we had stayed up later than ever before in our lives for double OT. When he scored, we ran around the house screaming and woke his entire family up.

...To this day, the kid and I have pretty much lost touch, but whenever I see him we always yell "Matteau, Meatteau, Matteau!"

...Pretty gay story now that I write it out, but hey, you asked...

At the bar across the street from the Garden. I remember I saw the goal a split second before everyone else and was the first one to scream

I was in a motel at Penn State, having dropped my daughter off there for a weekend volleyball tourney. I was going crazy because I couldn't get the game on radio and all I knew was that Leetch had scored and the Rangers were up 1 - 0. Got to the Motel and the game was on in the Lobby. Itold my wife to check in but we were not going anywhere until the game was over. Then Beukeboom wrappp the puck, it came in front and the Devils scored! Went to our room and held my breath for two OTs lying on the bed. When Matteau scored, my wife swears that I levitated 2 feet above the bed!
