Wednesday, 04.22.2009 / 10:28 AM / 2009 Playoffs Conference Quarterfinals

Jussi Jokinen's goal is the latest regulation game-winner in Stanley Cup Playoffs history. The previous record holder was Bob Pulford, who scored with two seconds left in Game 1 of the 1964 Stanley Cup Final to give the Maple Leafs a win over the Red Wings. The goal is a good omen for the Canes, as Toronto went on to win the Stanley Cup.

Yeah, I guess so. That empty-netter was pretty lucky, but I'll take it.
