Boston in five.
Think about it, and I am asking you to really think here. The '71 Bruins lived in a league without the "third-man-in" rule.
When The Bruins fought, it was a genuine melee. A full-on donnybrook. No one was spared. No one.
Gretzky would be beaten down, or injured - likely by Derek Sanderson or Ted Green.
Who on the Oilers would cover Bobby Orr ? Semenko or McSorely could try and sucker him after the whistle, but Orr could beat both of them. On top of that, the Bruins would gang-up and scare Dave and Marty into submission.
Spare me the Cheevers is weak argument. Compare Fuhr's GAA against Cheesy's.
Have you ever seen what Wayne Cashman or Johnny Mackenzie did in the corners ?
