20 Years Ago Today!

HABS WIN THEIR 23rd STANLEY CUP OVER THE FLAMES IN GAME 5 WITH A 4-3 NAILBITTER IN COWTOWN!!!

I remember this weekend on a number of great levels.
1. I graduated from high school the night before.
2. I raced home down eight street in Saskatoon, ignoring every light to catch the end of the clinching game. I thought the Habs would probably clinch at home the next game, and when I heard the score was 4 - 1 for the good guys in the 3rd period, I had to get home quick. We didn't have a VCR at home, so I needed to see them hoist the cup live.
It was 7 years since they won their last cup so that was a pretty good parting weekend for myself. Chris Chelios turned 24 years old, it was May 24!!
The Flames made it one hell of a game late in the 3rd period with 2 goals but St. Patrick shut the door and preserved his place in history.
Great memories all around.
