Kings vs. Maple Leafs


The much-improved Maple Leafs, led by Doug Gilmour and Wendel Clark, took a three-games-to-two lead into Game 6 in Los Angeles where they rallied from a 4-1 third-period deficit on Clark's hat trick. But in OT, Wayne Gretzky's high-stick that bloodied Gilmour wasn't called and the Great One remained on the ice, scoring the winner. In Toronto for Game 7, the Kings took a 2-0 before the Leafs again rallied to tie by the end of the first period. A Gretzky goal put L.A. up again, but back came the Leafs, whose impassioned faithful was roaring for a Stanley Cup Final showdown with rival Montreal. In the electric and wide-open third period, Gretzky's two tallies, the last one off the skate of Leafs defenseman Dave Ellet, were decisive in the Kings' 5-4 win.
