NHL.com just put out the best Stanley Cup clip I’ve seen to date. In a quick video called “Party off the Richter Scale”, Mike Richter tells stories of what it was like to win the 1994 Stanley Cup in NYC. It is without the doubt the best thing you will see all day.

I need a Netflix series like this so I can binge watch it all day.

Mike Richter Stops Pavel Bure

Of course, when you think of that 1994 Cup run there are key moment for almost each player. When you mention Mark Messier everyone will say his signature moment was “The Guarantee” in game 6 against NJ. Same for Brian Leetch who dominated Washington in game 5 with four points to get the Rangers to the Conference Final.

Now when you mention Mike Richter, his signature moment came against Pavel Bure in game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. The Rangers were on the ropes, down 2-1 and Bure was awarded a penalty shot. We know what happened and the Rangers won that game enroute the Cup.
