Some hockey fans have said that the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals was one of the most exciting finals, ever.
We continue our look back at that series with Game 2 between the Rangers and Canucks which was played Thursday, June 2nd in Madison Square Garden.
And this time it was all Rangers.
Goals by Doug Lidster, Glenn Anderson and Brian Leetch gave the Blue Shirts a 3-1 victory and tied the series at one game apiece.
The Canucks loan goal was scored by Sergio Momesso.
Following the cross continent trip to Vancouver, British Columbia, the two teams faced off at the Pacific Coliseum for Game 3 on Saturday, June 4th.
Home ice for Vancouver didn’t seem to help as the Rangers rebounded after Pavel Bure scored an early first period goal to beat the Canucks 5-1 and take a 2 games to 1 lead in the series.
Bure was given a major penalty and expelled from the game when his stick hit and cut Jay Wells in the face.
Rangers’ goals were scored by Brian Leetch (2), Glenn Anderson, Steve Larmer and Alexei Kovalev.
