The Montreal Canadiens win the Stanley Cup in 1986

Led by first-year NHL head coach Jean Perron and inspired by rookie heroics from goaltender Patrick Roy and forward Claude Lemieux, the Montreal Canadiens capped a surprising playoff run by defeating the Calgary Flames to capture the 23rd Stanley Cup in franchise history.

The Canadiens emerged from a tough first-round test when Lemieux scored one of his many clutch tallies that spring in overtime of Game 7 in the Adams Division Final. The Montreal-Calgary matchup marked the first all-Canadian Final since Montreal and Toronto faced each other in 1967. Brian Skrudland scored nine seconds into overtime in Game 2 to establish a record for the fastest overtime goal in NHL postseason history, eclipsing the old mark of 11 seconds set by J.P. Parise of the New York Islanders on April 11, 1975. Montreal prevailed in five games, with Roy, 20, becoming the youngest winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.
