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.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
