Detroit Red Wings PART 7
The 1989 Stanley Cup Final was between the Calgary Flames and the Montreal Canadiens, the top two teams during the 1988–89 NHL regular season. Calgary won.
Ann is born! Ann’s first hockey game in St. Louis, fall of 1989.
I have a video clip of me reading the Hockey Digest to Ann at about 6 months of age.
In the 1990 Stanley Cup Final, the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Boston Bruins four games to one. For the Oilers, it was their fifth Cup win in seven years, and the only one without Wayne Gretzky.
The 1991 Stanley Cup Final NHL championship series was contested by the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Minnesota North Stars. It was the Penguins' first Final series appearance and their first Stanley Cup victory.
In September of 1991 we traveled to Quebec and saw a Nordique game at the Colisee de Québec. Ann loved to say Bonjour on this trip. (a French word meaning "Good Day" or "Hello")
