Something happened to turn that game around and one Oiler (forgot who it was) said on the telecast "don't count us out, we're going to win this game and win this series".

It was like two different series rolled into one.

Then the team rolled over the subsequent opposition. Winnipeg was the toughest series, but mainly because the Oil didn't find the commitment and resolve yet.

on a sidenote I often thought the 91, and 92 versions could've got it done as well but they lacked similar resolve those seasons and were vanquished by respective opponents, Minny, and Chicago, that had loads of it. I thought those losses particularly bitter because you kind of recognized it was the end of times here.
