Over the course of seven years from 1996 to 2002, these two teams met five times for 30 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. This heated rivalry featured some of the League’s all-time greats, including Colorado’s Joe Sakic, Patrick Roy and Peter Forsberg and Detroit’s Niklas Lidstrom, Tomas Holmstrom and Kris Draper.
