16-bit Classic Snapshots


Recommended Posts

I was inspired by PixelPuck and their video recreation of Game 6 of the '91 Finals. A few screenshots of an edited NHL '98 and some Photoshop later, I recreated my two favorite Cujo saves growing up in Edmonton as a Oilers fan. Did the best I could, hope you enjoy.

Joseph on Nieuwendyk in the '97 Quarter-Finals in Game 7 overtime.

To Oiler fans, this is 'The Save'. I remember Bob Cole's call in disbelief, and Cujo peeking under his blocker where the puck was. Then Marchant would roof it on a breakaway next play and end to me the most exciting series I've seen to this day.

Joseph on Corbet in the '98 Quarters in another Game 7.

Believe it was in the 2nd period with Edmonton up by three, Cujo was knocked down behind the net and scrambled back, overslide but still managed to stretch out and make the stick save to perserve (and earn) the clutch shutout.
