There have been many great play by play calls in hockey history and this one ranks right up there! The 93-94 Western Conference Finals sets the stage, Vancouver leads the Leafs 3-1 in the series but are deadlocked 3-3 in the 2nd OT in game 5 when this play call rings through the air; Jim Robson says it all: “Back at the line to Babych, long shot, Potvin had trouble with it…Adams shoots, SCORES! GREG ADAMS! GREG ADAMS! ADAMS GETS THE WINNER 14 SECONDS INTO THE SECOND OVERTIME! THE VANCOUVER CANUCKS ARE GOING TO THE STANLEY CUP FINAL!”

  1. Well done. These are actually well thought out and not just dumbo Wimpden’s retirement night choices. I’ll throw in a totally obscure honorable mention. The Canucks beating the defending Cup champ Bruins that first NHL expansion year behind Rosaire Paiement’s heroics. I also think they may have beaten the B’s twice that season.

  2. flames in 4 sweep !!
    Canucks are nothing but a wind sock
    blowing in the wind

    I have been a Canuck fan since I was 5 years old when they were playing in the WHL! I was at this game 7 in Calgary when Pavel scored this huge OT winner! It was awesome, my brother and our best friend drove to Calgary and bought tickets at the ticket window in the morning of game 7 after we drove all night to get there……what a sweet win that one was and what a run in ’94!!
