Ozzie made a rookie mistake, Essensa single-handedly lost that 94 series. Despite totally dominating game 5 it was tied 4-4 with less than a minute to go because of terrible goaltending from Essensa. A rookie Czech d-man (I forget his name now) took a shot from the point that a child could have saved but Essensa let in.and he lost the game for us despite the fact that it looked like an NHL team playing against kids
Avs hated them ever since they changed from the Nordiques. Penguins one stings a bit still. Devils sweeping us Scott Stevens smoking Kozlov, they owned us that series. Osgood blunder vs the Sharks.
All give me nightmares still
Osgood was good all series except for the blunder in game 7. Essensa lost the first game with terrible goaltending, they put in Ozzie and he won 2 in a row before losing. With the series tied 2-2, they put in Essensa again and he single-handedly lost the game. Os good won game 6 and then we lost game 7.
Irbe had one of the greatest goaltending performances ever in that series
