Remember Minnesota?

Remember that 17 goals game that went in overtime in the second round between Chicago and Minnesota? This time only 15 goals were scored... only 15!!! The Maple Leafs took a 2-1 lead in the Avco Cup final with an 8-7 overtime victory against the Black Hawks. Mike Bossy scored the winner at 6:34 of the overtime, his 6th goal of the playoffs. Réal Cloutier scored his 12th and 13th, Wayne Dillon recorded four points, Jacques Richard, Rick Middleton (10th goal) and Mike Bossy have three points each. For Chicago, Gerry Teeple recorded four points, he now have 23 (record is 30). Wayne Merrick have a goal and two assists. Seven goals were scored in the second period, five of them in the first half of the period.

Chicago mobs Toronto

After a surprising 3-0 to the Maple Leafs, the Black Hawks came back with a radical 7-1 victory to tie the Avco Cup final 1-1. Dennis Abgrall (2 goals), Gerry Teeple and Dave Gardner have three points each with Chicago, Dave Elenbaas only faced 15 shots for his 8th win of the playoffs.

Herron and Bossy amazingly surprise the Hawks

Herron made 24 saves for his 9th win of the playoffs, Real Cloutier and Serge Beaudoin have two assists each. For Bossy, who was having some pretty quiet playoffs so far, scored his 3rd, 4th and 5th.

The O's will meet for the 11th Avco Cup Final

For the first time ever in the WHAS, Toronto and Chicago will meet for the Avco Cup, it is also a first final for the Maple Leafs, last year the Black Hawks lost in six games against the Jets.

Glenn Anderson and Wayne Greztky scored for Montréal. The Habs only shot 17 times on Denis Herron who gets his 8th win of the playoffs (8-3), Richard Brodeur (7-6) blocked 28 shots for the Canadiens.
