So I am reading my contemporaneous notes from 18 years ago tonight because, as Rangers' coach John Tortorella once told me out of a sense of exasperation not to be mistaken for admiration, "everything stays in that pad of yours."

And as I peruse shorthand that probably only I can read from the second period of the most famous Game 6 ever played indoors around these parts, I am struck by a series of blue asterisks, blue exclamation points and red arrows, one after another, almost filling a page, and all refreshing memories.
