This Date In Stanley Cup History


May 8, 1973 • The Chicago Black Hawks and Montreal Canadiens combined to set an NHL record with 15 goals in one Final game. Led by Stan Mikita’s two-goal, two-assist performance, the Black Hawks edged the Canadiens 8-7 in Game Five at the Montreal Forum. Montreal went on to win the series four games to two.

May 8, 1982 • The Vancouver Canucks became the first team since the 1922 Vancouver Millionaires of
the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) to represent that city in the Stanley Cup Final. The Canucks lost the opening game 6-5 in overtime to the New York Islanders, who went on to take the series in four straight games.

May 8, 1995 • New York Rangers center Mark Messier scored the 100th goal of his playoff career in an 8-3 win over the Quebec Nordiques in Game Two of their Eastern Conference Quarter-final. He became just the third player in NHL history to reach the milestone, joining former Oiler teammates Wayne Gretzky (110) and Jari Kurri (102).

May 8, 2003 • The Minnesota Wild became the first team in NHL history to bounce back from a three games-to-one deficit twice in one playoff year when they defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4–2 in Game Seven of their Western Conference Semifinal. In beating the Colorado Avalanche in the first round and the Canucks in the second, the Wild had needed to win both games five and seven on the road.
