AHHAHAHAHAH OH MAN THAT WAS A GOOD ONE
Someone explain the Otto reference.
We were the Cinderella team that year (1989).
We had taken the Flames to game seven in the first round and were out playing them. Stan Smyl had a clear breakaway from the blue line in. Unfortunately he shot it into Vernon's glove.
And then a puck was passed into the Vancouver crease. Otto scored and that was it for us. Replays showed Otto clearly kicked the puck in.
There were no video replays in those ancient times and the goal stood.
Lost all credibility when they put players from other teams on this list.
and the Flames went on to win their only Stanley Cup...whenever someone here in Alberta asks how many Cups the Canucks have i always say..."Otto kicked it in" How they respond to that decides how much i respect them as a hockey fan.
LMFAO! THIS! And when I say this, I mean ALL of them on one sign.
Actually Vernon admitted after the game he was making deperation saves in the OT. So Steamer didn't just shoot into Vernon's glove. Just saying.
March 1, 1992. Don't even have to look that up. Still the best hockey game I've ever watched. Probably haven't laughed that hard since.
Nope. Personally, I think March might be more realistic.
The ones who matter would.
On one hand, terrified of playing against the Flamers' backup while we're riding a win streak, but on the other...Calgary sucks.
5-1 Canucks. Raymond with 2 goals, Sedinery nets at least one, and...ah, what the hell. Ballard blasts one on the PP. Why not.
I cheered for the Flames in the Battles of Alberta and even after the beat Vancouver in 89. Hated the Oilers and Canadians. Favorite Eastern team by far was Boston. Things have changed a lot. In those days Canucks fans needed other teams to cheer for in the West and East to have any interest in the playoffs. Thank god that has changed.
4-2 Canucks -- I'll say Schroeder pops the cherry.
Canucks destroy them. Schroeder FINALLY scores
Does anyone smell a massacre? I smell a massacre.
Douse these ****ers.
Schroeder, Raymond (2x), Daniel, Kassian
I can't believe I cheered them on in '89 also. =\
This guy knows it. OT did the song straight lines by silverchair in 2007-2008ish get to Canada? Such a sad transformation. But mid 90's silverchair !!!!
Disclaimer: not really a big Silverchair fan, that was just the first song that came to mind when I saw the word 'massacre'. I think I actually did have that CD, though. A lot of the 90's are a bit of a blur for me, tbph. Had some...ill-advised "hobbies" back then.
trap game? no.
Fixed that for ya.
well this is weird, it looks like sportsnet ran highlights of this game decades later for no good reason other than because it was awesome. of course our friend M A K A V E L L I has archived it online for us.
i'm now six years older than mclean was when he played that game. sigh.
