So would this count as one of the biggest chokejobs in hockey history?

The Russians were up 3-1-1, with three games left to go, and all on Russian soil. And in the final game, they were up by 2 goals after the second intermission. Yet they still somehow lost the series.

Granted, they were heavy underdogs going into the series, but it's still a massive collapse as far as I'm concerned.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

In a word, no. Besides,

Tretiak:

God give him that goal. I wish Henderson not fall down behind net because maybe he never get up and never be in front of net and score. Lucky, just lucky. I make first save. Defense no help me. Why? Vasiliev and Liapkin no help me.


Even forty years ago, "thrown under the bus" was being done in the Soviet Union.
