For a second year running, Scotty Bowman’s troops, holding a 3-2 lead in the series, stood to capture hockey’s most prized award in front of a disappointed Boston crowd.
Mario Tremblay, making only his fifth postseason appearance of the spring, came through for the Canadiens. With the score tied 1-1 after goals by Boston’s Brad Park and teammate Steve Shutt, the “Bionic Blueberry” got down to business. The 22-year-old forward notched his first goal - the eventual game-winner - at the 9:20 mark of the first period. He worked his magic again midway through the second, beating Gerry Cheevers a second time. Before time wound down in the final frame, Réjean Houle had also managed to put one past the Bruin netminder while Ken Dryden backstopped his team to a 4-1 victory.
The Canadiens captured the Stanley Cup for a third consecutive year, the 21 time in team history.
