The second hockey (fifth overall) of what will hopefully be many podcasts focuses on the 1993 NHL playoffs, one of the best ever. The best team was shockingly upset, the Cup returned to its most frequent home, and the Greatest One of them all delivered a performance for the ages.
NHL ’94 released in October 1993.
Gretzky grew up in Brantford, Ontario, just an hour from Toronto, so he defeat his hometown team. Correction was that game 6 was known as the high stick game, while Game 7 is when Wayne had the hat trick, to send L.A. to the Stanley Cup Finals. Leafs fans may want to seriously injury me for getting that backwards. Overall, Wayne had 40 points in the playoffs to lead the league, tied with Gilmour for the lead in assists with 25.
What we missed:
The Adams division was the division I failed to mention.
Pittsburgh also had Joe Mullen, the first U.S. born player to score 1,000 career points. Bob Errey signed as a free agent with San Jose, not the Anaheim expansion draft.
Hasek did not start for Buffalo, it was Oilers legend Grant Fuhr between the pipes for the Sabres who lost three games to Montreal in overtime.
