Flames vs. Blues
This series has been overshadowed by Calgary's semifinal upset of the dynastic Oilers, thanks to Steve Smith's infamous own-goal. The first four games were split, two by lopsided scores (8-2, 5-2), before things got interesting. After losing Game 5 by 4-2, the Blues of Doug Gilmour, Bernie Federko, and Brian Sutter were down 5-2 with 11:52 to go in the third period of Game 6 before rallying to force overtime on Greg Paslawski's goal with 1:08 left. In the extra session, Doug Wickenheiser beat Flames netminder Mike Vernon off a rebound at 7:30 in what is known in St. Louis as The Monday Night Miracle. However, Vernon and the Flames recovered to win Game 7, 2-1.
