Playoff Misery


Hunter's Shot

Dale Hunter Video Primer

This video vividly demonstrates what fellow warrior Chris Chelios told about Hunter's style of play: "As much as you hate him, it's the same old story, you'd love to have him on your team." (Book Pg. 294)

"Prior to the Stanley Cup Finals run of 1998, there was no debate about the single most thrilling moment in Washington Capitals history.

"It came at Capital Centre, late on the night of April 16, 1988. "It" was Dale Hunter's overtime goal in Game 7 of Washington's opening round Stanley Cup playoff series with Philadelphia."

Below, the Hunter goal as shown live on three sports networks: nationally on ESPN and Canada's TSN, and regionally on Home Team Sports.

Hunter's Shot Video

Mike Emrick:
"Breaking is Hunter...
He's by the defense... Score!"

Jim Hughson:
"Hunter streaking through
the middle... The pass...
Hunter's in on a breakaway!"

Mike Fornes:
"Murphy starts the rush...
He hits Hunter... He's in alone...
A shot and a goal!"
