And Friday, the Edmonton Oilers better forget about trying any replication of April 16, 1991 and concentrate on trying a recreation of May 12 and May 14, 2022.
When it comes to the fans there’s a fear here heading to Game 2 that the thousands of them who weren’t born in 1991 thought that was it.
Holy cow, 15 goals!
The scary thought is that 31 years is a long time ago and most of the players and a significant percentage of the people in the pews and watching on television around the province, the nation, the league and the world had grown up on the legend and lore of Stanley Cup battle of Alberta may thought that was something of recreation of the real deal.
The truth is that Game 1 was a sorry sight and a massively disappointing night.
