The Jim Coleman is down to two powerhouse teams, the New Jersey Swamp Devils and the Ottawa Senators. A blood battle must be settled in order to name one the winner of the conference, and to move on to play the Regina Pats for the Milt Dunnell Cup.
Game 1: Jaromir Jagr is in complete control, he scores and sets up Mike Modano on the power play. The Rocket scores and so does Ziggy Palffy. Chris Pronger who has been crushing bodies all game gets his opportunity on the power play and bangs one home! Sens win Game 1, 3-2. OTT 1-0
Game 2: Tommy Phillips gets on the board early, and Chuck Gardiner is a brick wall. Henri Richard adds a second period goal and it's all Devils from there. Clint Smith and Vyacheslav Starshinov add third period goals and Gardiner earns a 30-save shutout. Devils win 4-0. TIED 1-1
Game 3: The Richard brothers deliver with a goal apiece in the first. But Jagr and Dan Bain strike in the second, Chris Pronger springs a breakout pass to Modano who scores his second of the series on a breakaway. Joseph would go on to stop many late third period shots and the Sens win 3-2. OTT 2-1
Game 4: Starshinov scores early, and sets up Palffy later in the period. Senators pepper Gardiner with shots, but only one Jagr goals gets through. Dan Boyle adds a late PP marker and the Devils win 3-1, tying the series at 2.
Game 5: Jagr scores on the powerplay, Eddie Gerard adds a goal as well. The Rocket fires one home and it's officially a shootout here in New Joisey! Jagr scores again in the second, the Devils respond with a goal from Shane Doan. Doug Bentley scores a big third period goal, and Jagr completes the hat-trick with an empty netter. 5-2 Sens, going back to Ottawa. OTT 3-2
Game 6: The Devils quickly respond to the Game 5 loss as Henri Richard scores an early goal. Gardiner plays out of his mind and keeps all pucks out of the net. Art Coulter's first goal of the series proves to be huge in the third. The Sens have no answers for Gardiner and he steals his second game of the series. Back to Jersey we go. 2-0 Devils. Series tied at 3.
Game 7: Jagr continues his dominance in Game 7 with a goal in the first. Joseph plays like Gardiner did in Game 6. Rocket Richard rips home a bullet and it's tied at one. Speaking of bullets? Bullet Joe Simpson unleashes a laser that Gardiner doesn't see coming. Sens hold a 2-1 lead after 40, Modano breaks out of the gate and puts the Sens up by two. Pronger and Gerard shutdown the Richards and Phillips and that would be all she wrote. The Regina Pats have a new rivalry, with the Ottawa Senators!
