The Best Of Jeanneret: (1) Shields/Snow Goalie Fight vs. (3) Roll The Highlight Film

New, comments

The Best of Rick Jeanneret is our summer quest to determine which of Jeanneret's most memorable calls ranks as the greatest of all time by ranking and voting on 16 of the best.

Shields/Snow Goalie Fight

In one of the most memorable brawls in hockey history, the Sabres and Flyers found themselves engaged in a 5-on-5 melee...until it became 6-on-6 when either team's goalie got involved in the scrum. After a lengthy build up featuring plenty of action in and of itself, Steve Shields and Garth Snow decided they'd had enough watching and decided to get involved themselves. The rare goalie fight was made even more memorable because of the accompaniment an already-incensed Jeanneret provided. Some consider this clip to be the true Hockey Heaven.

Roll The Highlight Film

There are few goals that inspire a call so memorable that they named a CD after it, but Maxim Afinogenov's against the Tampa Bay Lightning was certainly one of them. A 360-spinorama-thorough-the-legs miracle move that somehow beat the defender and found its way into the back of the net. A gasp that said "I don't believe it" from Jim Lorentz preceded Jeanneret's famous call that has, over the years, ingrained itself into the popular Sabres consciousness.
