Skimming through the boxscore archives at the QMJHL website I stumbled across what must have been the most lopsided result in any final game all time. In game six of the 1984 QMJHL finals Laval crushed Longueuil 17-1. This is just ridiculous! Mario Lemieux had six goals and two assists in the game. Here is the boxscore. What happened??
I mean, the other games were relatively close (9-3, 4-7, 4-3, 3-4 and 3-1), but this makes no sense. Does anybody know more about this??
What makes this even more strange is that the last game of the regular season, where Lemieux broke Guy Lafleur's goal record, was against Longueuil as well. Laval won that game 16-4.
Is this all a strange joke?
