Alex Mogilny's 1st goal of the series had given the Leafs that 1-0 lead. It was Toronto's first goal in the series that didn't come in the third period. At the time, it was the 6th consecutive Toronto goal since Kenny Jonsson had opened the series scoring in Game 1. The goal at 7:32 of the first was the only one that the Leafs would get.
The Leafs got out of the first period even at 1, despite the Isles outshooting the Leafs 19-6. The Isles, who had the last 13 shots of the period, took more shots in the first period than they did in the first game. By night's end, they would almost equal their shot output for both ACC affairs.
Brad Isbister and Mariusz Czerkawski played exactly 8 seconds of the first 14 minutes of the second period--but they made it paid off as Czerk and Aucoin assisted on what turned out to be the game-winning goal 6:01 into the 2nd.
Then, just after the Isles killed a Chris Osgood penalty, Michael Peca got on the boards [set-up by Blake] with his first of the playoffs at 13:33. When Parrish would score his 2nd of the game at 19:19, the Isles had a 3-goal bulge heading to the third. The "twins", Jonsson and Aucoin set up that one.
Shawn Bates and Dave Scatchard put their names into the Isles' record books by connecting 14 seconds apart, as the Isles blew it open in the third. The 14 second spread ties one of the oldest Isles playoff records--set by JP Parise and Denis Potvin on May 1, 1975 in a game the Isles would eventually lose to Philadelphia in OT.
Van Impe and Yashin set up Bates while Isbister had the lone helper on Scatchard's goal as the Isles won their first playoff game in 8 years, 11 months and 1 day by the laughable count of 6-1.
It was the first time the Isles have scored 6 goals in a playoff game since that dramatic game 6 win over Pittsburgh in 1993 set the stage for David Volek's heroics two nights later and represented the Isles' widest margin of victory since a 6-1 win over Edmonton on May 12, 1984 in their final win as Stanley Cup champions. [The Oilers would win the next three, all in Edmonton, to end The Dynasty.]
If you don't know the story, it's worth watching.
