Edmonton Oilers win the Stanley Cup in 1990

All Stars

In the 1990 Stanley Cup Final, the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Boston Bruins four games to one. For the Oilers, it was their fifth Cup win in seven years, and the only one without Wayne Gretzky (in fact in the 2nd round, the Oilers defeated the Gretzky's Kings).

In game one, Petr Klima scored at 15:13 of the third overtime period to give the Oilers a 32 win; this game remains the longest in Stanley Cup Finals history (Longest NHL overtime games), edging both Brett Hull's cup-winner in 1999 and Igor Larionov's game-winner in 2002 by less than 30 seconds.

In game five at the Boston Garden on May 24, the Oilers won 41. Craig Simpson scored the game-winning goal. Oilers goaltender Bill Ranford, originally the backup who took over from Grant Fuhr for the remainder of the regular season and the entire playoffs, was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as Playoff MVP.

Mark Messier won his first Stanley Cup as a team captain. He would win his sixth Stanley Cup as the captain with the New York Rangers four years later, scoring the Cup winning goal, making him the only player to captain two different Cup-winning teams.
