Players living with concussions looking for answers with lawsuit
For a moment there is a lightness in the room, deep laughter at the memory of one of Dennis Vaske's shining moments as a player, his role in one of the iconic goals of this generation.
Sure, it was a second assist, but his name will forever be connected to David Volek's overtime winner for the New York Islanders in Game 7 of the 1993 Patrick Division finals over the powerful defending Stanley Cup champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Vaske recalled how he'd been invited to a friend's wedding the same weekend that series finale was scheduled to be played. His friend started naming off the Penguins' lineup: Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Kevin Stevens, Tom Barrasso, Paul Coffey.
