    I think that the #9 game on the list should be the Game against Calgary when the Wings were down 4-2 with about 7 minutes left and won in OT!! I remember Zetterberg and Dats scoring with 5 seconds left to tie and then Lidstrom undressing Kipper for the OT goal!!

    Any game with Pavel is a Top 10 game! Go Wings!
