Stanley Cup History
June 16, 2011 by staff
Stanley Cup History, It has become fashionable in the last 10 years in the NHL to go seven games in the Stanley Cup championship. I did not realize until I started researching the subject, and I realized how rare the feat be. From used to what I could find, there have been 16 Stanley Cup Finals Game 7s No. Since 1914 six of those coming since 2001. This is somewhat surprising, especially when you consider that 20 years from 1966 to 1986 was just a game of No. 7 in the final.
Yes, for those scoring at home, the Montreal Canadiens beat the Blackhawks on May 18, 1971 by a score 3-2 in the only game No. 7 in that stretch. As has been well documented last year, the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead late in the second period the year before giving up a goal from the red line and ruined in the third period.
A little young to remember that one, the first thing I remember was in 1987 when the Edmonton Oilers won 3-1 to the Philadelphia Flyers. It was a valiant comeback by the Flyers to force a Game # 7 after being down 3-1. Mike Keenan was also stop before arriving to lead the Blackhawks to the Cup final in 1992. Mark Messier and Kurri Jarrie goals in that game was 1987.
The next significant was in 1994 when Keenan led the New York Rangers beat Vancouver 3-2. In one, the Rangers were blowing a 3-1 lead, but then held on to win the title of the first final of New York at the best of five decades.
Since then, all types of execution, with the last in 2009, when Detroit beat Pittsburgh 2-1. Needless to say it was a memorable for me in the Red Wings were defeated and prevented from winning two titles Sid the child (who was injured and missed most of the game, by the way) and the company.
In 2003 and 2004 finals were won by the clutch and grab specialist teams from New Jersey and Tampa Bay, respectively, before the NHL lockout. Then, right out of the work stoppage No. 7 was another game when Carolina beat Edmonton 3-1.
This brings us to the present (or at least past-present). Before this series began, I took Vancouver to win in five games. A colleague asked me before Wednesday’s game if he wanted Vancouver to win. In essence, as I said, I just want to see a good game and do not care one way or another. However, if supported in a way that would be to the Canucks since he picked them up.
I do not mind that the Bruins won.
Brad Marchand to look good in a uniform Blackhawks. A true hub of 24 years of age who pushes on. His play in the corner to get to the disk and put it in front of Patrice Bergeron was something. His goal in the second period against Roberto Luongo was number 11 in the postseason for him – tying the rookie record previously held by Jeremy Roenick. Roenick has 11 goals in 1990 with the Blackhawks.He cried last year as ananlyst on television when the Blackhawks won. Roenick jokingly said he might mourn again this year after the game No. 7. Undoubtedly, like many fans of Boston Bruins, after nearly four decades of waiting.
