OT penalties were rare back then and had to be very blatant to be called usually. Had that team won the Cup, it would have gone down in Sports History as one of the all time best single season teams ever... as it is, they are a trivia answer (sigh).
And Denis Potvin scored a goal in that game with an obvious (except to the officials) high stick. If either of those calls were made correctly, we might be talking about three cups.

And thanks for awakening those old demons again. I don't care if Leon Stickel cured all known diseases after his time in the NHL, I'd still want to kick his nuts through the roof of his mouth if I saw him today.
