NHL Network is going to raise the Cup all summer long.
Every day at noon, we'll roll out another Cup clincher to stave off your hockey hunger. Watch your heroes of yesterday win it all ... again.
Fans can tune in at 12 p.m. ET every weekday for a different game -- and different champion. A complete program schedule can be found on NHLNetwork.com (U.S.).
For the first time since the 1980–81 season, the Edmonton Oilers did not win their division, break the 100-point mark or lead the NHL in goals. But, for the fifth time in six years, they were playing in the Stanley Cup Final. Already a dynasty with three Cups in their last four seasons, the Oilers squared off against the Boston Bruins, making their first appearance in the Final since consecutive trips in 1977 and 1978.
The defending champion Oilers cruised into the Final, losing just two games in the first three rounds, and they would continue their winning ways against the B's. Edmonton doubled up the Bruins in each of the first three games -- 2-1, 4-2 and 6-3 -- with the first two games taking place North of the Border and the last of the three on Boston ice.
