Stastny’s Light It Up as Top-Seeded ’84-’85 Nordiques Defeat 8th-Seeded ’82-’83 Nordiques in Five Games

The top-seeded ’84-’85 Quebec Nordiques broke the double digit barrier in goals in the opening game of the series. They took Game 1 over the 8th-seeded ’82-’83 Quebec Nordiques by a final of 11-6. The three Stastny brothers, Anton, Marian and Peter, are on both of these teams. They totaled 21 points in Game 1 with Anton Stastny potting five goals for the ’84-’85 Nordiques. However, in Game 2, it was Michel Goulet who stole the show for the ’84-’85 Nordiques as he registered three goals and three assists for six points, but Peter did tally four assists in the 8-6 win. The ’82-’83 Nordiques stormed out with three goals in the first period and scored the first four goals of the game. Three of which came from Goulet who, much like the Stastny’s, is on both rosters. The final of Game 3 ended at 5-2. The two teams combined for six goals in the first period alone in Game 4. The ’84-’85 Nordiques held a 4-3 lead late in the second when a power play goal from Wilf Paiement made it 5-3. It became the eventual game-winner after Peter Stastny brought the ’82-’83 Nordiques within one. The ’84-’85 Nordiques dominated in terms of shots in Game 5, but a goal from Marc Tardic tied it up for the ’82-’83 Nordiques and forced overtime. Paiement scored another power play goal, which was also his fourth point of the game, five plus minutes into the overtime period to end the series.
