Bruins’ loss evokes memories of 1990

CHICAGO — It was 23 years ago. It was in the old Boston Garden. It was in the middle of May. The Bruins and Edmonton Oilers skated into a third overtime in the first game of the Stanley Cup Final. It went until 1:22 in the morning.

And the Bruins lost, 3-2, when Petr Klima (whose lawn in Edmonton used to be mowed by none other than current Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference) beat Andy Moog with a five-hole wrist shot at 55:13 of overtime. Klima, who spent most of the night opening and closing the door for his teammates, said he hadn’t skated a shift in almost three hours before he scored the game-winner.
