Hockey was more exciting back then.

The modern game is grinding out the entertainment value with too much defensive philosophy and too large goalie equipment. What are called scoring chances many times really aren't - most shots have no chance with the size of the goalie equipment.

In the 80s, there were more legitimate scoring chances and goalies had to have great reflexes to make saves. Today they are robots, letting the puck hit them much of the time.
