This week’s Hockey Happy Hour on NBCSN will again feature memorable “on this date” games in NHL playoff history.
Three years to the day, Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored four goals, including the double-overtime winner, to lead his hometown Senators over the Rangers, 6-5. Ottawa went on to win the series in six games to reach the Eastern Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
John Forslund and Brian Boucher called the matchup from Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
During the broadcast, Eddie Olczyk reflects on his final career playoff goal on April 29, 1998, as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
You can watch a livestream of the game here.
