I want a couple of Stanley Cups really take charge in the dressing room and get everybody fired up and we came out and we were fired up right in the warm-up right through the hockey game and just played as a set of super game earlier in these playoffs so you'd gone a few games without a goal and you were being asked a lot about how you reacted to that I I asked you tonight I'm sure you you didn't need a goal to feel good I mean those assists were as good as any anything you put in yourself well to me as I said earlier if I get my name my sign cut that's what we're all playing for in this captain on the hockey team my job is to try to make sure that everybody's feeling good about themselves I'm contributing to the hockey club and you know as I said to me and sisters just as great as a goal or you know team winning is even better and to be to be on this team I just have to make sure that I get the puck that those guys in the put in the net tiny area makes a great shot and Randy Greg of course and Kevin all three were good plays and they finished them off and it was nice to go there now everybody's gonna say the Stanley Cup final is over now you're going home to win it at home won't that be nice what do you do to guard against the possibility that you'll you'll become overconfident and think that way as well well we realized that we still got a lot of hockey left that Flyers our team that's got a lot of character and they're not gonna roll over but we feel confident our fans are gonna be very noisy in Edmonton we haven't lost in our building in a while we play well there we we also realize that there's a time where experience has to take over and the older guys have to help you help out the the new guys who haven't been in this situation before and realized that we need that killer instinct and in Game five and we definitely don't want a long flight all the way back Carlino keepers gets $500 to the Minor Hockey Association of our first Stars choice Brantford they might be getting ready to build a new rink once again our final score Edmonton four and the Flyers one [Music] 87 tonight from the spectrum in Philadelphia but to you by carving O'Keefe brewery [Music] this is tonight's winning goal it happened late in the first period Gretzky with the puck over the blue line on a short-handed situation spots Kevin lo who goes in to score the winning goal Oilers win it by a score of 4-2 one lead the series 3 games to one [Music] now let's go upstairs to Dan Kelly and John Davidson okay Jim John my looking back at this game as the owners really had their act together tonight their specialty teams penalty killing power play and just their overall defensive plus offensive play in other words they did it all well they play a game at a high tempo Dan they can play it very well when they do things well that includes a lot of different areas in their game one was their passing accuracy you saw them spread out and use the entire ice surface I thought in game 3 which Philadelphia came back and won the Flyers closed off the boards and the Oilers had the puck trapped along there therefore they did not pass it well and they did not get their speed going but in this game they spread themselves out all over the ice surface quick sharp accurate passing and then finally with that patience back there they opened it up with a good pass they broke loose they did everything very well in other words they rebounded from a very disastrous defeat the other night with a solid effort tonight let's go to Dave well it'll be said that the Stanley Cup final series turned very definitely in Edmonton's direction with tonight's victory three to one is of course very different from two two but perhaps the Flyers real chance to make this a series was in Game two when they took the owners in Edmonton to overtime but lost on URI Curry's winner the Flyers or any other team would have a hard time expecting to beat the Edmonton otters twice anywhere and the otters as good as they've been on the road this season did split the two games in Philadelphia here they're quite happy to go home with a 3-1 lead they will want very much and will try hard to clinch the cup on Tuesday night cons pipe trophy nominees Gretzky put himself into the running if he was ever out of it tonight and Mark Messier and grant fewer are the two others you would think in terms of most valuable players in these playoffs we'll have it for you on Tuesday as the Oilers try to win the and the Flyers try to extend the series behalf of everyone connected with Stanley Cup 87 join us then and thanks for watching now from Philadelphia in Philadelphia they beat the Flyers four to one to take a three to one lead in that Stanley Cup final series once again Wayne Gretzky was the story here he's feeding yari curry for his first of three assists on the night that made a 2 to nothing Oilers after one period on the Flyers narrowed the gap to 1 is Brad McCrimmon beat fewer on a 50-footer it was 2 to 1 early in the second but that was his closest Philly would Commons grad fear was once again brilliant overall stopping 27 shots on net evidences final goal Doug Marcia's pass intercepted by Mike crucial Missy and he beat Ron Hextall on the glove side things got ugly late look at Hextall hacking Edmonton's Kent Nilson whoa a five-minute penalty for that slash even the spectrum fans got rude at the end taking a shot at oiler coach Glen Sather I'm telling you well maybe the Flyers think it the least the fans think their team might not be coming action anymore this year game 5 in Edmonton on Tuesday the Oilers can wrap it up still a little customer today in the final round of the Atlantic Golf Classic bar of Canada captured his first u.s. victory since 1981 with a 7-under par 65 those are the finals of the World Team Cup tournament in West Germany John left claiming a strained calf muscle but you know what I think this is getting to him he has not been the same since he came back from his layoff I think it's bugging him because he's such a tough competitor this week's tip of the tam goes to a pretty tough competitor as well a courageous man from British Columbia who embarked in a wheelchair odyssey 26 months ago and he made it to the finish line this week take a look at one amazing guy an estimated 20,000 people lined suburban Vancouver streets a couple of days ago to welcome their hero home Rick Hansen handicapped in a 1973 truck accident he finished around the world crusade traveling 25,000 miles in his wheelchair to raise funds for spinal cord research organizers estimated that Hansen raised over 11 million dollars how many of us could do something like that not I that's amazing up next musical bloopers apparently the loss was not so crushing because the orders did come back and they handed the Flyers a four to one loss that gives the orders of three to one lead in the series they are one victory away from their third Stanley Cup championship and that victory could come Tuesday night at the Coliseum grab Feuer was mr. reliable in-goal once again he proves that the glove hand is quicker than the eye the Flyers cannot get it fine borders open the scoring six minutes into the game yari kuri 1 times the centering pass from Gretzky is 13th goal of the playoffs where coach Glenn say there wasn't comfortable yet he wanted some more and he would get some near the end of the period owners playing short-handed Kevin low back handing one past Ron Hextall two-nothing orders after one period of play Flyers get on the board eight minutes into the second period on the power play it's grad Brad McCrimmon the point shot and the Flyers were thinking come back but not this game the orders got that goal back with a power play of their own Gretzky sets up the third straight goal Randy Gregg gets it his third of the playoffs meanwhile grant fewer continued to frustrate the owners at the other end of the ice and this is what playoff goaltending is all about what a save three-to-one orders after two periods of play now the order has made it 4 to 1 417 into the third period Mike crucial miski plays the deke around Hextall his third of the playoffs it was not a good night for Hextall Hextall took out his frustrations on cap Nielsen watch in front you thought Billy Smith had a bad stick Hextall was given a five-minute major for that Nielsen wasn't seriously hurt and flyers coach Mike Keenan had some nasty words about the call but the shouting was all for naught the Flyers go on to lose this game by a score of four to one though the owners can gain a split of the two games they gain a splited in Philadelphia and Glen Sather hole was he glad to leave gets abused by a wild Philly fan as the owners head back to Edmonton now with a 3-1 lead in games court Miller at the spectrum for a time game for look exactly that game three even the score was the same but instead of blowing the lead the orders increased it and moved themselves within one win of capturing the Stanley Cup we didn't bleed you know we played a super first period in Game three and I'm pretty good first eight minutes and all the sudden the tide turned on a couple of power plays and they came on they really got some momentum and they came at us and tonight we just think in those opportunities they start coming out as we just played such a disciplined defense of a game when Grant Fuhr is a great goaltender and when we're giving him defense like that it's awful tough to beat him well I think the difference was that we were able to play with four lines tonight and we didn't seem to get tired and although he had at one point I guess it was four to one against us and penalties that the Cali killers were playing well and they were skating moving the puck they were playing smart when you leave the zone until we're all five of us were back and then when we got the puck we moved it around and said it threw it around I think we kept going at him tonight I mean the other night we laid back a little bit let them come with us tonight we just kept going at them and as long as we were going at them we had control of the game after the Hextall Nelson incident there were some pushing and shoving and you guys kept your cool did you talk about it on the bench not to incite anything not to get anything going I think that's I mean we're gonna there's nothing we can do about that I mean we got a we got to accept that and sure the guys in the bench were upsetting the guys in the race you're upset but you know it's Stanley Cup Finals and we're just gonna accept that and try to go up win the next game it was late in a game and you know I understand gave me one so you know I was I was gonna give somebody one I don't give him one what's he gonna do next game break my arm I mean let's be honest here his case should have been called you know weather and he didn't see it or what happened I don't know but those penalties should have been even obviously the fourth cohort a lot and hurt a lot because we we still felt we could come back and the fourth goal put us back on our heels a little bit so you know we're just gonna have to regroup and like I said obviously though you can't get down two or three goals to a great hockey team like that he just it catches up just sooner or later in the stands the flyer fans were once again a boisterous but even though their team again fell behind they did their best to get the fires back in the game [Applause] you know they're really vocal and Edmondson okay what we were one goal down last time that was nothing what two goals down now no problem we're going ahead we got this one to see it taught up to two back damage see here on Thursday Gord it was nice meeting you unfortunately for the Flyers and fortunately for the Oilers that fans crystal ball was a little foggy now the long road to the Stanley Cup is almost over the owners are one win away at the Coliseum from regaining their status as Stanley Cup champions with the orders in Philadelphia I'm Gord Miller for CBC sports I think one of those fans stole Gord Miller is tie tonight once again Stanley Cup champions for the Oilers this is their third championship in the last four years and it's only the 11th time in history that one team has won the Cup three times one member of the Oilers who's been around for all three of those victories is veteran defenseman Kevin low and very late last night while all of Edmonton was celebrating and throbbing Peter had a chance to talk with them Kevin I guess first of all congratulations thanks Peter I appreciate it watching the postgame show I think the hardest thing next to winning the Stanley Cup is answering the question how do you feel well I feel really excited this time around I think it was a little bit different people were critical of our two losses in game five and six and the fact that we won in game seven it was a classic confrontation between gold tenors and we really took it to him it was a great game it's gonna go down in history and the fact that our name is on the Stanley Cup makes a difference you know I was a bit surprised to hear Gretzky say after the game that he thought Hextall might even be better than Tretiak how do you rate Hextall well the best way to describe Hextall is that he hung in there I mean every game we were getting leads on them and particularly in Game five oh we were really taking a tool but I think we had 15 or 16 shots in the first period and we're up by two goals but he didn't hold under pressure and I've seen a lot of gold tuners and in our history of just fold under the fact that we gave him so many shots but I mean tretiak's been in one of the Great's of all time and compared to Hextall while coming from Gretzky that's a great honor yes I remember in the the Philadelphia Montreal series there was some talk that some of the trail players were getting hexed by Hextall that was a favorite headline in this part of the country wonder if that happened to you guys at all did you ever reach a point where you thought we're not gonna be able to get it past this guy no it was somewhat different than Billy Smith four or five years ago when we first went to the finals Hextall was making great saves but he was making the saves after we were getting leads so we knew he could score goals on him we knew some of his weaknesses but he was making a big he was he was the difference when we were up by a couple goals and instead of us blowing him out of the water the Flyers were chipping away getting back into it but Smith a couple years ago we just couldn't put anything by them and I guess the difference between Smith and X Hall is the fact that you know Hextall kept the Flyers into it I think most experts think of the Oilers as a freewheeling high-scoring but these skiers this year you guys did it on defense at least as much as offense well we knew going into the playoffs that we'd have to change their style somewhat our coaches believe that that a good offense is a great defensive part of our high-flying style is the way we pour check and the way we force the opposition into making mistakes and we're capable of capitalizing on them but in the Detroit series the the Winnipeg series in the LA series we had to particularly in the Detroit series we had to play strong discipline hockey and be patient and that was a word that was thrown around the dressing of an awful lot be patient be patient don't get over anxious don't try to blow them on the first period and and it was most evident tonight in tonight's game we were getting ample opportunities we were getting lots of chance that we couldn't put it by Hextall but we were maintaining our patience June 1st it's a long season they Kevin it's extremely long but it to finish it off this way is the only way to finish it off as far as I'm concerned we came to the game tonight we knew that this was the last game that tomorrow was holidays and we knew that last summer was difficult because we lost we didn't want to have to make excuses and now there's no more excuses were you gonna do this summer I'm gonna travel I'm gonna enjoy the sunshine I'm gonna reap the benefits of being a Stanley Cup champion once again thanks for some great hockey congratulations again Kevin I'm story last night that's because rowdy fans got out of hand celebrating their team's Stanley Cup victory more than 2,000 fans were still partying on the streets late last night the scene eventually turned ugly as police used water hoses and dogs to disperse the rock-throwing mob thanks very much Doug the party mode has turned down a notch or two although the players are no doubt still savoring the fruits of victory the celebration the public won at least resumes tomorrow with a parade and rally ITV will be there live tomorrow night one can only hope the fire hoses won't be needed it was a third Stanley Cup in four years for the Oilers and for some this victory was a sweetest if only because the obstacles were more difficult to overcome the Oilers ended the 87th season in dramatic fashion in game 7 of the Stanley Cup final and no one was more excited to be in Lord Stanley's candy store than Marty McSorley [Music] [Music] McSorley who played the best hockey of his career in the final was one of six orders dressed who had never experienced the thrill of winning a Stanley Cup others included Rahill roots Elena and Craig Muni you know this feeling to be here now and you know I couldn't dream about this kind of thing happen to me and you know I have to say you know thanks for the Phyllis potato it faded me all we have defenseman Randy gray came out of retirement to claim his third Stanley Cup ring Greg will consider calling it quits again this summer but last night he was enjoying the moment even if I had to be in a retirement thought I would have been cheering as hard as possible for the Oilers the group of players that we have amassed is it's got a lot of a lot of class I think a lot of respect for the other teams but we had a great deal of self-confidence that if we played a 60-minute game we'd come out successful URI curry scored the winner in the second period last night likely overtaking his goal in Game two as the biggest one of his career curry admits he had a few butterflies before Game seven not too nervous you know Weaver we had a lot of guts so being around a lot than being maybe this kind of situation but it's our fourth time on the finals so you know that might be helped us a lot following the game NHL president John Ziegler presented flyers goaltender Ron Hextall but the Conn Smythe Trophy is playoff MVP it was tough to argue with the choice the Flyers wouldn't have got to Game seven without him but orders forward Craig McTavish made an argument for his own goalie Hextall played unbelievable that I'll tell you our goaltender Grant Fuhr he played just as well and stood in safer stay for him and it's an injustice that he didn't win a Const my Ronnie played unbelievably deserve the Conn Smythe we got the cup orders coach glen sather called last night's game the best one he's ever been involved in the Flyers never quit battling back from a 3-1 series deficit and they earned the Oilers respect we came back here thinking being five was we're gonna do it then we're going back there played a great game of Game six and they snuck it out again and we had two days to recuperate I think that was a blessing and this guy is really for our club we stayed away from the rank the first day the second day we had a vice skate collected ourselves and came up with a good effort the courage it takes to come back and not quit in those situations is going to make our team that much stronger in the future and the experience they've gained through this playoff series and throughout the playoffs this year I hopefully is going to someday make a sound or put us on the other side of the ledger and everybody expecting us to win this it was maybe the hardest one because there were so many expectations for us to do it and going through what happened last year was a big chore for this team to overcome but they've done all that they've overcome a lot of adversity it was great I know I'm gonna be back you know hopefully played another seven years in this league and Azazel's in Smith's but as the guys who've you know given all their career 10-year veterans who we couldn't win the Cup for him because that's the guys who I really feel sorry Brad Marsh mark Howell you can go down the line ronnie haxon l played unbelievable he should have been a cup winner this year but wasn't meant to be the NHL's two best teams provided us with the greatest Stanley Cup final in this decade two years ago orders beat the Flyers in five games this year the series went an exciting seven as the orders captured their third Stanley Cup on May 31st ending the league's longest ever season Bruce Buchanan ITV sports while the celebrations continued here the Flyers returned to Philadelphia and although they came home without the Stanley Cup the fans on hand at the airport were glad to see them regardless [Applause] [Applause] we're about 10 minutes short this year but you better believe we'll be back a few other notes concerning the cup final the final game is expected to have the highest viewing audience of any NHL playoff game six TV networks and four radio stations were broadcasting the game in fact there was a shortage of television cables when it came time to set up 392 broadcasters and writers were on hand roughly nine for every player there are over 100 technical people involved in 65 photographers now surprisingly there were a number of empty seats maybe the scalpers didn't get the money they were after but whatever the price was paid the drama the tension the excitement and for most of us the result should have made it well worth it well the hockey season came to an end last night the hoop season police spokesperson Joyland or ash explained those tapes will be used to identify several people the police claimed were responsible for inciting the crowd we're using these pictures in the film to assist us in apprehending these people so that they don't go on to injure even possibly kill somebody else have you arrested any of those so far yes we've made one arrest so far and we're looking for at least two other people and this is the case every time like this it wasn't the the real fans that were responsible for the damage it was only a few people that decided to get out of hand and wait till the last minute and those are the people that were interested in the CBC has reluctantly complied with the warrant to turn over the videotapes executive producer Terry field says the media should not be used as an investigative arm for the police we are now going to show you those two news stories turned over to the police tonight it was a victory celebration an Euler win boasted 30,000 people jamming the streets of downtown Edmonton some Euler fans some just looking for a party mostly younger people [Music] but soon police grew tired of the crowd tired of their drunken tricks and decided it was time for people to go home but the crowd wasn't ready yet it wanted to stay from that moment on the party was definitely over and tension grew as people lined themselves on one side of the street the police on the other [Applause] [Music] three policemen were taken to hospital after being hit by bottles thrown from the crowd but they weren't the only ones hurt you like that look it's like everybody's just sitting here it also you want to just have a good time police then called in the fire department to help them but nothing seemed to work [Applause] as the early morning wore on the crowd grew more and more defiant inching its way back from where police and earlier chased them but police weren't ready to give up either dozens of arrests were made but the people still wouldn't leave finally the riot squad was brought in hours later with the help of dogs the fire department and police the battle was finally over the police won the crowd left leaving behind a big mess store windows broken and glass and garbage littering the streets for miles Rick Bogusky CBC News Edmonton the cleanup started bright and early last night's party left numerous windows broken along Jasper Avenue police say 19 stores were damaged in the melee that followed the order victory it was a beer bottle there was half of one still on the florist so I don't know where the rest was Jones Bukowski got a telephone call at 4:00 this morning the front window of her optical store had been smashed well I think what they did really wasn't called for it's trying to get excited I think a lot of people where I was myself and but I mean this is this isn't fun this that this is damage you know but I don't think it was necessary at all further down the street the glass repair crew was working at weiners shoes the window had been knocked out there as well we do appreciate the Oilers winning the hockey game but it does get a little carried away at times as you can see with a smashed window here but I find a ludicrous that people will smash windows in the party atmosphere so to speak even the men who earn a living fixing broken windows wondered whether or not all the damage was really necessary I did my celebrating at home I didn't go out in the streets and pick somebody else's property or whatever you know okay thank you I don't think it's the man to do this you know what do you mean by that well I think if you're truly fine you support the players you don't have to go out and get rowdy and vandalize and whatnot for Edmonton Oilers fans stanley cup number three is the sweetest victory yet but for some of the shopkeepers down here on jasper avenue some of the sweetness of that victory was soured by the vandalism that took place long after the final whistle was blown Kevin Tibbles CBC News Edmonton and a teenage girl celebrating the victory last night on the front lawn of the City Hall and there spilled over a class one hundred and second eighth Avenue we've got a lot of people here let's go right up to the podium is the Stanley Cup champions are being introduced by

aldermen Jan rhymer is speaking to the rapport is in China and so she is handling the proceedings and now let's go back to the stage where the owner Peter Pocklington is ready to address the I see you've got lots of fans in my travels all over North America I've visited many many cities and it's the spirit of the people of the city that make it a great city there's no better city in all of North America than Edmonton Alberta because we've got the greatest people not only do we have great people we've got a great hockey team and greatness greatness stems from what they believe in they believe they're great and they're proud to be part of our great city thank you folks [Applause] thank you Peter ten years ago last March when Safer was named coach of the Edmonton orderers the owners

orders Glen safer I guess I need to be an old fart I want to thank the city for putting this day on for us I think it's just unbelievable I wish Mary decor was here instead of China so we could all

should hurry back from China because I think Wayne Gretzky might be able to run for mayor right now and be successful judging from the reaction to the crowd and will rejoin Thank You Lee I know everybody has their own way of celebrating the Stanley Cup in being excited but it must be unique for the players wives and family so it's it's kind of a big release and and there's no there's no feeling like but it must be a pressure cooker take us through the last couple of weeks leading up to the cap oh that's that's a little hard to do you can't make many decisions your husband won't make many decisions so you have to do it all on your own riches is a tough part for a wife to do so much so it is it's pretty tough you can't talk too much and he's pretty touchy and upset if he's not playing and really high and off the walls playing so it's pretty tough it's pretty tough to keep your family going at the same pace I've had been all year but everything changed you say you want it that's all we can do here now let said moment of the summer and it it's just like getting out of school actually it's not the same but as kids feel it's like getting out of school kids are pretty good Alyssa who's in in the first grade schools seem to really notice her and ask her a lot of questions and she handles it quite well she knows quite a bit about hockey and quite a bit about the inside of it so she does quite well the little one is a little that's another story she's kind of she's like her dad a lot and she gets excited like her mother but this is quiet when she needs to be like her dad I thought this might be a little too much for my kids so I decided to get the sitter and keep Matt home and [Music] z crowd with a fellow by the name of Brad Richardson's Rhett see any of those games at the Coliseum but you got to see them on TV did you have your heart and your throat at that last game oh yeah I just always pulling for the order it was a pretty close game but I knew they'd

Liat turn nuts late a nice evening after all though the Sun just tucks in behind the claws but we're a little concerned when we woke up this morning it was it was blustery and the crowd was not that large until about 5 o'clock and then everybody just seemed to fill up this front lawn and it just spills all over the city square and said we had a tremendous crowd out I'm sure Karlovic the boys the players appreciate it they appreciate their support they love their letters they'd love to read them in the dressing women and it's really a nice feeling to show you know you come and you play for your city and you play for your team just as long as they don't die in the parade before they win the Stanley Cup that guy - now let's not do that again because that doesn't seem to work out this isn't great you know ever plan this did a great job out here when it wasn't as nice weather so it's great to see well we've enjoyed it and as I said the evening isn't over for the rock group is just

celebration turned sour widest crowd suddenly rioted against police [Applause] the rioting went on for hours three policemen were injured there were dozens of arrests police ordered in dogs in the fire department to help them chase people away from the city's downtown [Applause] [Music] the firemen say they don't like having to help the police control the crowds they say it's not their job that firemen unlike police aren't in a position to protect themselves but the acting city mayor disagrees by and large if the police are in charge of a situation and they need some type of assistance and and hosing people down is certainly preferable to any other kind of method of crowd dispersal I would think you know you see in the United States where that you know things can get fairly ugly with some of the situations they have I thought it was a very reasonable approach and we should be trying to cooperate with one another Reimer says she still doesn't have a full report from last Sunday's riot but she says she's satisfied police acted properly that they didn't over exercise their power you know it isn't an easy job from the police and of it at the same time you want to make sure that you know people are out there they can let off steam because there's been a lot that's been being building up but at the same time that they don't become violent and destructive all day police were discussing a plan for tonight's celebrations they say they want to be prepared if the crowd gets out of hand they say this time they're not gonna put up with any open drinking and that extra police will be on duty and the fire department will once again be standing by Ric Bogusky CBC News Edmonton we will have more coverage of tonight you
