8 Goals against in the Stanley Cup Finals

Roberto Luongo has had an up and down playoff season in 2011, more up then down. The game three 8-1 loss in the Stanley Cup Finals is about as down as he can get. A team notching eight goals in the Finals is, as expected a rare event. It's even more rare when a goalie is not pulled in such a game and allows all eight. The last time a team scored 8 was in 1996, and the last time one goalie gave up all eight was in 1985 when Philadelphia's Bob Froese was ventilated.

The following are the eight goal games in the Stanley Cup Finals:



  • 1996, Game 2. Colorado 8, Florida 1. John Vanbiesbrouck and Mark Fitzpatrick 4 goals against each.
