As part of its Grande semaine de hockey, RDS is replaying Game 5 of the 1993 Stanley Cup Final. A game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Los Angeles Kings (complete with Wayne Gretzky). It follows a live game today where we beat the Kings 5-2.
The game footage, which doesn’t have an on-screen clock (most of the time) or scorebox or all the other stuff we take for granted nowadays, is “enhanced” with some Pop-up Video-style trivia tidbits and jokes.
I won’t spoil how it ends, but somehow I think it’ll be a happy day.
The game will be followed by a one-hour documentary special looking back at the last time the Habs went all the way, 15 years ago.
UPDATE: Show’s over. For those who missed it, this is what happened.
