Yeah, the difference in the two was Moog would get angry in situations and start fighting it and Fuhr was mostly unflappable. Except for the time he gave the crowd the "Trudeau finger salute"

Fuhr is such a character. Somehow he had the perfect goaltending disposition for that club. Guy never worried about his GAA, stats etc, but was money with the games on the line. The most important thing was making all the saves at the important times.

ps The Oilers had already undressed Moog before in the SC win. He didn't much like playing us after leaving town.
