Michigan’s Mike Legg scored the goal of the decade on March, 24, 1996 in an NCAA Tournament matchup between the Wolverines and the University of Minnesota, a goal so famous that it is often simply referred to as "The Michigan." With the Wolverines trailing, Legg pulled up behind the net, but with four Gophers milling around down low he took matters into his own hands, lifting the puck off of the ice on the blade of his stick and throwing it into the top corner of the net to tie the game. Minnesota Gophers goalie Steve DeBus didn’t see it coming, throwing his glove hand up after the fact, the puck already bouncing at the bottom of the net. Story via: Fox Sports
