#3: Game 6 OT Winner vs New Jersey (05/21/2003)
For the second straight game, the Ottawa Senators were up against elimination from the Eastern Conference Finals. After Radek Bonk and Joe Nieuwendyk traded goals in regulation time, Ottawa knew they’d have to score in overtime to keep their dream of a Stanley Cup Final appearance alive. Up steps Chris Phillips.
After a classic puck protected rush to the goal from Marian Hossa, Martin Brodeur kicked the puck right to the top of the crease. A pinching Chris Phillips was at the right place at the right time to pot the rebound and let the Senators live to fight another day. This was by far the biggest goal Phillips scored as a Senator, and an iconic moment in the team’s history despite being unable to complete the series comeback in game 7.
