I was 10 years old and my parents always made me go to bed early back then. I remember that as I falling asleep they were reviewing some goal by Recchi IIRC. I woke up in the middle of the night and went downstairs to see if they won and it was still going on. I saw the end.
i remember staying up to watch the who game. they were talking about how much gatorade and pizzas they had to feed the teams. people were falling asleep in the stands. by the time primeau scored few people in the arena were even awake. i remember going to school the next day it seemed like everyone stayed up to watch the game and didnt end up coming in.
