On Wednesday, June 9th, 1993, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Los Angeles Kings at the Montreal Forum in Montreal to win the 80th Stanley Cup Finals four games to one. It was the 24th (and, as of this writing, most recent) Stanley Cup championship for the Canadiens franchise, and the 17th that was won in Quebec. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
