The first goal of the finals comes off the stick of Cam Neely. He scores 3 minutes into the game. Ken Daneyko ties it a few minutes later, and Scott Mellanby gives Vancouver the lead after a period. In the 2nd, Shawn Chambers and Doug Gilmour score two minutes apart, taking the lead back for Quebec. Gilmour scores again in the third, in a 4-2 Quebec win. Game two sees the Canucks lead early on again. Mike Gartnerís first of the series makes it 2-0 in the 2nd. Late in the period, Zdeno Ciger cuts the lead in half, and Mark Lamb ties it in the third. Overtime. In OT, a Sean Chambers point shot gets through Mike Liut, winning it, 3-2, for Quebec! They lead the series 2-0.

Chambers goals gives Quebec a 2-0 series lead!

For the third straight game, the Canucks lead early, on a Darryl Shannon goal. For the third straight game, they canít hold the lead, and trail 2-1 after the first. Zdeno Ciger and Brent Gilchrist have the Nordiques up by three early in the third. Two late goals by Craig Janney and Phil Bourque make it close, but not close enough. 4-3 Quebec wins. With just one win to go, the Nordiques took game four off. Vancouver scores first, and scores often. They outshoot Quebec 36-16. Jeff Brown is the first star with 3 points. The Canucks crush it, 8-1.

Jeff Brown gets 3 points in game five. Is it too little too late for Vancouver?

In game five, the Canucks take 6 seconds to score. Luc Robitaille has to have set a Stanley Cup record with the quickest opening goal. Vancouver leads 2-1 after a period. Mark Tinordi scores shorthanded to tie it in the 2nd. On the same pp, Scott Mellanby gets it back. 3-2 Canucks going into the third. Halfway through the third, Paul Coffey converts a Doug Gilmour pass to tie it. Itís scored short handed. Allowing two short handed goals to defenseman in an elimination game is horrible!! With 4 minutes remaining in the tie game, Quebecís top players, Paul Coffey, and Doug Gilmour, set up Cam Neely, for the Stanley cup winning goal! 4-3 Nordiques win. They take the series in 5!
