Fresh off shutout in the previous game, Patrick Roy stands tall in the Canadiens net once again, allowing his team to take a 2-1 lead into the locker room after 40 minutes. He would end his night with 30 saves.
Midway through the third period, Rick Green and Bobby Smith beat Flames netminder Mike Vernon a mere 19 seconds apart, giving the Habs a comfortable 4-1 cushion. Despite the Flames’ attempt at a comeback, the Canadiens hang on for the 4-3 win.
The victory captures the 23rd Stanley Cup in team history. Roy, at just 20 years old, earns the Conn Smythe Trophy, becoming the youngest player in NHL history to receive the award.
