We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot deliver in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game.  

Oh my. Words cannot describe the joy I felt when Andy Moog stoned the giant Habs in the 1981 playoffs. Montreal was the No. 3 seed (behind the Islanders and Blues) and Edmonton came in as No. 14 seed (ahead of only Pittsburgh and Toronto). The Oilers scored three goals (one from Anderson, two from Kurri) in the first period and hushed the home crowd on the way to winning 6-3. Won Game 2 in Montreal, too. Then came home and swept les Habitants 6-2. All details are here, my thanks to Steve Lansky. Andy Moog faced 96 shots, stopped 90, for a .938 save percentage. He was beyond glorious, Claude Ruel never knew what hit him. Music!
