Answer to bonus question: The spring of 1994 was magical for Canuck fans. After an average regular season, the Canucks lost three of their first four games in the first round playoff series with the Calgary Flames. The Canucks won the next three games in overtime and moved on to the second round of the playofs.

After eliminating the Dallas Stars in five games and the Toronto Maple Leafs in similar fashion, the Canucks met up with the President Trophy winning New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Finals. The first game was played on the final day of May. Kirk McLean played phenominal, allowing Greg Adams scored late in the first overtime period, giving the Canucks the victory. The Rangers then took the next three games, pushing the Canucks to the brink once again. After an exciting game five in which the Canucks won, both teams returned to Vancouver for game six.

On June 11, 1994, the teams played what has been called the best game ever witnessed at the Pacific Coliseum. The Canucks went ahead 1-0 in the first period, then scored again in the second. With the Canucks up 3-1 late in the third, Geoff Courtnall appeared to score, but play continued and the Rangers scored. A video review showed that Courtnall's goal was legitimate, changing the score from 3-2 to 4-1 in favour of the Canucks.

With the game out of reach, Adam Graves ran at Trevor Linden, hitting him in the face with the butt-end of his stick. There was no video review of this play and Graves played game seven three nights later. Linden, playing with a black eye scored twice in a losing cause.
