I'm struck by so much watching this video. Haven't seen this footage since it was live 22 years ago. Some thoughts below:
-This 5 minute PP made possible by Geoff Courntall running the goalie and drawing the ire of some angry Kings.
-Damn Turgeon was good. He'd put up 100 points every year in today's game.
-Look at Ray Barile's hair!
-I completely forgot Hal Gill ever played for the Blues
-LOL at 90s hooking/water-skiing. I remember it of course, but you don't see it in most highlights from those days because most of the highlights are all of guys like Bure burning through guys that had to try to hook/grab to slow them down.
-Hey that Kings head coach looks familiar!
-In case you were wondering, yes that is our dear friend Darren Pang absolving the goalie of any responsibility of the 4 goals allowed (well maybe not the last one).
-This was always the high point of the year for this era of Blues. The last moment of glory before getting their hearts ripped out by the Red Wings.
This is great stuff. Still got this on VHS tape. Went to bed after the 2nd period so I didn't see it live. This was the year where ESPN had picked the Blues to win the Stanley Cup before the playoffs started. We had a heck of a big 3 on defense with Big Mac, Prongs and Duchesne.
I agree, Turgeon would be fun to watch in today's free skating game. The guy could make plays. Kopitar reminds me of him sometimes.
You're right, Hal Gill. Who's he - ha
Blues stole that game!!!
