Buffalo's offense came alive in the playoffs in 1997 (where it was good enough to carry Steve Shields to the second round), 1998, and 1999.
From the results:
both teams scored 14 goals. Difference was the distribution of the goals. Hasek had two shutouts so over the remaining 5 games the Devils scored 2.8 GPG. During the season the Devils enjoyed a 306 to 282 GF advantage.
Brodeur's zero shutout flat line performance carried the day this time. Great series.
