Video Highlights 1971 Stanley Cup Final Series Canadiens v. Black Hawks

Recently I posted a link to video highlights of the 1973 Stanley Cup final series that were posted on Robert Lefebvre's Eyes on the Prize website. Here now, on the same website and as a result of a lot of work by Francis Bouchard, are TV broadcast highlights of the 1971 final series between the same two teams.

Thanks for the link! Some great footage indeed. Dryden and Esposito made some great saves in those games and boy these forwards had some nice slapshots. Jim Pappin's dekes were also great watch. I am a bit disappointed by the defensive effort on both sides though (might be due to the fact that this is a compilation but still). Watching goalies playing stand-up style is incredibly weird by the way.

Thank you for the link.

Very nice backhand pass by Guy Lapointe to start the rush on the Stanley Cup winning goal by Henri Richard.

The play featured much greater east/west movement of the puck. This required the goalies to play more stand-up.

Notice how the forwards came back deeper in the zone to rush or carry the puck up ice - Lemaire goal being an example.

Notice the movement thru the slot from various angles.

The last two observations are interesting given the trends in this year's playoffs. The Canadiens used Scott Gomez at various times to come back deep and rush the puck.

Teams that refuse to attack the slot from various angles and depths see a great reduction in their offense. Evidenced by the Canadiens against the Flyers. Capitals against Montreal to cite a couple. Conversely the Hawks / Flyers final with both teams attacking the slot is generating offense.
