Hockey Card Sets (By Season)
1990-91 Hockey 6 Team Card Set
- Penguin Power: Pittsburgh wins its first Stanley Cup
- Golden Brett: MVP Hull scores 86 goals
- Playoff Surprise: 68-point North Stars ascend to Cup Finals
The six carded teams in this set are Stanley Cup winner Pittsburgh, Stanley Cup finalist Minnesota, division winners Chicago (106 points), Los Angeles (102 points) and Boston (100 points) and Norris Division runner-up St. Louis (105 points). A utility permits printing the other teams. As always, the Windows version of this season will include all teams.
Five teams topped 100 points, but 88-point Pittsburgh won the Stanley Cup. Super Mario Lemieux played only 26 games in the regular season, scoring 19 goals and 45 points, but returned to play 23 playoff games, where he won the Conn Smythe Trophy for his 19-goal, 45-point performance. He had serious help from 40-goal scorers Mark Recchi and Kevin Stevens.
After the Penguins eliminated 100-point Boston to reach the Cup finals, they met with upstart Minnesota, a sub-.500 team. Edmonton, with the league’s top scorer in Wayne Gretzky (163 points), had sent Calgary and Los Angeles, the top two teams in its Smythe Division, home and Minnesota had done the same to the top two in its Norris Division, Chicago and St. Louis – then routed Edmonton in five games.
This season had many individual stars, too, especially Hart Trophy winner Brett Hull, whose 86 goals for St. Louis were the second most for a season in NHL history. Theoren Fluery, Cam Neely and Steve Yzerman each scored 51 goals; 16 others scored at least 40. Ten men topped 100 points.
