Twenty years on, we reflect on Liverpools legendary 4-3 win over Newcastle - a game widely regarded as the greatest in Premier League history… Two decades have passed but the memories of Newcastles trip to Anfield in 1996 still burn brightly. John Smoltz Jersey . Kevin Keegans faltering Entertainers were in urgent need of victory having seen a 12-point lead over Manchester United replaced by a three-point deficit, while third-placed Liverpool harboured title ambitions of their own.The encounter featured a plethora of attacking talent and had all the ingredients to be a classic, but it still managed to exceed just about everyones expectations. We were third and Newcastle were second and we were going to try to keep things tight and try to nick a win, reflected former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore. Game plans went out the window pretty early on, though. Collymore would become Liverpools hero by dispatching the winning goal in second-half stoppage time in front of a delirious Kop, but his first major involvement came just two minutes in when he set up Robbie Fowlers opener with a looping cross from the left flank.The far-post header was the 19-year-olds 27th goal of the campaign, and it set the tone for the pulsating drama that followed. Within 12 minutes, Newcastle had turned the game on its head. Les Ferdinand equalised with a sharp finish from Faustino Asprillas cut-back, and David Ginola struck their second after springing Liverpools offside trap.

Liverpool worked the ball to Jason McAteer on the right-hand side, and the Irishmans teasing cross was met with impeccable timing by Collymore to level the scores once again.The Sky Sports cameras panned to dejected Newcastle supporters in the away end, but things were about to get a whole lot worse. With the clock ticking down and both sides still searching for a winning goal, John Barnes and Ian Rush combined for the former to tee up the onrushing Collymore on the left-hand side of the Newcastle box. Stan Collymore smashes the winning goal past Pavel Srnicek All I can remember thinking was: Hit the target, said Collymore. I wanted to hit it across Pavel Srnicek, which is what youre supposed to do, but I hit it so hard that it beat him at his near post. I didnt know what to feel after. It was fantastic. I ran over to the Kop and was thinking: What have I done? Tylers greatest game The Sky Sports commentator explains why Liverpools 4-3 win was the greatest game he has worked on. Jamie Redknapp was among the Liverpool players who sprinted over to celebrate with Collymore. Incredible game, said the Sky Sports pundit. Newcastle took the lead, we came back, Newcastle took the lead, we came back… It had everything, and in that last minute, I think it was Barnes to Rush, to Barnes, to Rush, to Collymore.In the Newcastle dugout, Keegans despair was famously captured on camera. When I look back now, just seeing Kevin Keegan sprawled across the advertising hoardings, I think he was a beaten man after that, added Redknapp. Kevin Keegan can be seen slumped over the advertising hoardings as the Liverpool bench react to Collymores winning goal The Newcastle manager rejected criticism of their gung-ho playing style after the game, but Liverpool boss Roy Evans was rather more pragmatic. That was kamikaze football, he said. Great for the fans but realistically nobody will win the championship defending every week like these teams did tonight.  Evans, of course, was right. Newcastle and Liverpool failed to overhaul United in the final weeks of the season, and Sir Alex Fergusons men clinched their third Premier League title with a four-point cushion.Ginola described the defeat as the turning point for Newcastle in a campaign that had promised so much. We were an entertaining team, he said, but we then realised we could lose games. Never again have they come so close to winning a Premier League title, and the wait continues for Liverpool too. Watch Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp join Ed Chamberlin to dissect Liverpools 4-3 win over Newcastle on a Monday Night Football special at 6.30pm and 10.30pm on Sky Sports 1 HD.

The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- Look no further than Jason Pominville for evidence that things are going better offensively for the Minnesota Wild under new coach Bruce Boudreau.Heading into his third game of the season Thursday night vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs, Pominville already has his first goal notched. Last season, thats a feat that took more than 20 games as Pominville slogged through one of the worst offensive seasons of his career.I felt good, Pominville said after scoring in Minnesotas 6-3 home win over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday, which lifted them to a 2-1-0 record. Ive been shooting good in practice. Ive missed a couple, actually one in the first game, one in the second but yeah, its nice to be able to get one early and hopefully get going in the right direction. I dont have to worry about it now and just go out and play.Thats the freedom Boudreau has given the Wild, encouraging them to just play, move the puck, shoot the puck and have fun. After a rough season-opening loss in St. Louis, the Wild have put together back-to-back home wins over the Winnipeg Jets and the Kings, and now are prepping for the arrival of Maple Leafs rookie Auston Matthews and the accompanying circus.After scoring four times in his NHL debut, Matthews -- the Arizona kid picked first overall by the Maple Leafs in June -- has quieted down offensively. His assist on Wednesday night in Torontos 5-4 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets was his first point since the season-opener. Thaats a fact not lost on opposing fans, who have quickly made Matthews the object of their razzing. Cheap Braves Jerseys Online. That was the case Wednesday, when the Maple Leafs (1-0-2) lost in Winnipeg after leading 4-0. When Jets rookie Patrik Laine, the second overall pick behind Matthews last summer, completed his first career hat trick in overtime, just seconds after Matthews had been stopped on a breakaway, it prompted a chant of Laines Better from the Winnipeg audience.As players, you dont really think about it much, Matthews said on Wednesday of the rivalry with Laine. Its not really a comparison, its your team against theirs. You obviously want to better your team in any way possible, whatever it takes to win.The Wild have owned their games with the Maple Leafs recently, winning five straight in the series, including both meetings last season. But four of those five Minnesota wins have been by one goal, and the all-time series is knotted 8-8-0.Although its a non-conference game, and one of only two meetings between the Maple Leafs and Wild this season, it could have some special meaning for Boudreau. Hes a Toronto native who played pro hockey both in Minnesota of the WHA and in 134 games with the Maple Leafs over the course of six seasons. Two of Boudreaus assistant coaches, John Anderson and Darby Hendrickson, are also former Maple Leafs.
