Alain Côté is a viewer of the regulars of the series-Canadian Northern in 1982, which aired in full this week on TVA Sports. He remembers some memories forgotten.
“I’ve watched the first two parts. I didn’t even remember that I had marked! The fifth part, I remember more, however!”, he indicated to the issuance JiC Wednesday, just before the third game of this confrontation, which ended to the advantage of the Nordiques after five matches.
This feat is all the more significant that the Nordics have achieved without their best player, Peter Stastny, who was injured from the first match of the series.
“Peter has been our best player for many years. It was scary not to have him with us, confessed Side. But other players have taken over.”
“The ox of Matane has, in particular, cited as examples the attacker Dale Hunter and goalie Daniel Bouchard, who “has made stops extraordinary.”
If the Nords have caused this surprise, it is because the players believed in themselves, despite the power of their major rivals, supported Side.
“The Canadian was much stronger than us at the time, but it was not too complex.”
