Facing elimination, the 15th-seeded ’00-’01 Colorado Avalanche needed to get off to a good start and they got that when captain Joe Sakic scored a little over a minute into the game. However, the 6th-seeded ’84-’85 Edmonton Oilers leveled it up late in the opening period with a PP goal from Wayne Gretzky. The Oilers then took a 2-1 lead early in the second with Glenn Anderson‘s 14th goal of the tournament. Just about two minutes later, Mark Napier gave Edmonton a 3-1 lead with his sixth goal of the tournament. I

t remained 3-1 until early in the third period when Scott Parker potted his first goal of the tournament as Colorado narrowed the lead to one. However, at the 7:25 mark of the third period, Gretzky scored his second PP goal of the game to give Edmonton a 4-2 lead. Then, just five plus minutes later, Jari Kurri scored a PP goal of his own to finish off Colorado’s tournament run. The PK for Colorado really hurt them in this game, giving up three goals in four opportunities and really, over the course of the entire tournament, their PK hurt them as they finish the tournament at 66.7%.
