60+ scorers - It'd been 15 years since we'd had that (1990-1991)
defenseman with >55 points
. Even in an "off" year Pronger racked up the points (56). The last time an Oilers defenseman had done that was Coffey back in '87
I'm not even going to get started with the miracle playoff run.
Wow. Those stats really put it in perspective. I wonder how much of that is the rule changes and the increased penalty calls. (none the less, very impressive).
On the Detroit series game 6, I recall asking a friend what it was like in the building, especially since we were down 2-0 going into the third. He said nobody was worried. That game was possibly the defining moment of the Cup run for me. I wasn't worried about SJ and we had always played Anahiem tough in the years leading up to that series. Calgary definitely dropped the ball but not getting past them.
