What a season! On the way to an NHL-record-tying fifth straight Stanley Cup, the New York Islanders lost a five-game final to Edmonton, which began its own dynasty (four Cups in five seasons, five Cups in seven).
The Oilers’ 57 wins, 119 points and 446 goals (setting the NHL record for the third straight season) dominated the regular season, and then the playoffs. Wayne Gretzky (87 goals, 205 points) won his fourth straight scoring title and fifth straight MVP. With Jarri Kurri (52 goals, 113 points) and Glenn Anderson (54 goals), Edmonton became the first team with three 50-goal scorers. Defenseman Paul Coffey invoked memories of Bobby Orr with 40 goals, 86 assists and 126 points to finish second to Gretzky in scoring.
Mike Bossy (51 goals, 118 points) and Bryan Trottier (40 goals, 111 points) again led the Islanders.
This season had so much more. A rookie (Buffalo’s 18-year-old Tom Barrasso) won the Vezina Trophy. And the Sabres’ 103 points were just one short of Boston in a dramatic Adams Division race that included 94-point Quebec, with the league’s No. 3-4 scorers, Michel Goulet (56 goals, 121 points) and Peter Stastny (46 goals, 119 points).
Washington, with Norris Trophy winner Rod Langway and Selke winner Doug Jarvis, set a franchise record with 101 points, but finished second to the Islanders in the potent Patrick Division, where Philadelphia had 98 points and the New York Rangers had 93.
