Pittsburgh Penguins vs Washington Capitals 1996 Game 4 – 4OT


After losing the first two games in Pittsburgh the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, the Penguins won game 3 to make the series 2-1. These are highlights of Game 4 in Washington, which saw Tom Barrasso leave after the 1st period due to back spasms, Mario Lemieux get ejected near the end of the 2nd period, Ken Wregget stop a penalty shot by Joe Juneau in the second overtime, and Petr Nedved finally scoring in the fourth overtime to tie up the series, which the pens eventually won in 6 games. Sorry for the grainy quality, it was the best i could do. No copyright infringement intended. For entertainment purposes only.

    Great game. One of the top 5 NHL playoff games of the past 20 years I’d say. Thanks for upload.

    The Penguins have absolutely brutalized the Capitals throughout the years. Pittsburgh has won 7 playoff series against the Caps – Washington has something like 10 playoff series wins ever.

    Attended this game, it was glorious. It ended after 4am and my butt had to be at work in a couple hours. My bosses were pissed! So many people had left by the end of the second overtime they were letting anyone that showed up into the US Air Arena for free to fill the seats for TV. I was so tired by the time the winning goal was scored I was just staring at the net waiting for something to go in. Didn’t know Nedved scored the game winner for a few hours after it was over.

    what a game, had forgotten it was so near the end of another period…this was indeed the year the pens lost to florida, the team that made a killing in the 93 expansion draft, reached a finals in three years, and then went to crap almost immediately…

    amazing to hear that ridiculous old espn2 hockey music, remember the “fire on ice” intro with the inverted colors and whining cello?…miss the old days of espn2, had some wild programming

    I love these old hockey clips. I also like the old Penguins and Capitals teams as well. I wish the NHL was still this intense.
