With the Vancouver Canucks just two wins away from their first ever Stanley Cup, we continue our look back at the series that gave the NY Rangers their first Stanley Cup in 54 years.
Game 4 was played Tuesday, June 7th at the Pacific Coliseum. The Canucks scored two goals early to take a 2-0 lead but Brian Leetch scored a goal and had three assists, giving the Rangers the victory, 4-2 and a commanding lead in the series.
The game’s most exciting moment was the save Mike Richter made on Pavel Bure’s penalty shot. Bure became the first Vancouver Canuck to ever have a penalty shot in the playoffs. It came with 13:29 left in Period Two. And Mike Richter showed why he was one of the top goalies of his time.
Listen to Sam Rosen and John Davidson with their call.
For the 2011 Vancouver Canucks, they play the Boston Bruins tonight in Boston, leading the series 2-0.
