Mike Richter made 38 saves on 40 shots, giving up goals to Igor Larionov and Brendan Shanahan. Brian Leetch and Jeff Beukeboom helped hold Steve Yzerman to a -2, and the Rangers won off of tallies by Niklas Sundstrom, Petr Nedved, and John MacLean. Adam Graves was held without a point in almost 20 minutes of ice time, and Wayne Gretzky had an assist.
It was January 30, 1999. Clinton was President, OK Computer was the latest Radiohead album, there were only three Star Wars movies, no one had ever heard of an Xbox, and Lindsay Lohan was the adorable 12-year-old child star of Disney's recent remake of The Parent Trap.
It was also the last time the New York Rangers won a hockey game in Detroit.
