VIDEO: Marty McSorley talks about the hurt that’s still there

For nearly 20 years, when anybody says ‘Kings’ and ‘Stanley Cup Finals’ in the same breath, the name Marty McSorley is usually not far behind. In 1993 the Kings emerged victorious in an epic 7-game series with Toronto in the Conference Finals and went right to Montreal to play for the Stanley Cup.  After downing the home team 4-1 in Game 1, the Kings were again leading late in Game 2 when McSorley was sent to the penalty box for an illegal stick. The Canadiens went on to win that game in overtime and eventually the series in five games. That moment has been labeled many things through the years and still stirs deep emotions for many Kings fans – and from the sound of things in this interview, the scars run deep for McSorley too…

McSorley will join us a special guest on this week’s MayorsManor show – which will also include a plethora of guests related to the ’93 playoffs and/or the Kings organization, including Bruce McNall, Bob Miller, Jim Fox Luc Robitaille, Kelly Hrudey and many others. We’ll preview this year’s series with the New Jersey Devils, as well as take a few trips down memory lane with the guys who were there last time.  Don’t miss it!

In the meantime, to hear referee Kerry Fraser give his take on what went down in ’93, click here to listen to our podcast with him.  He shares some fascinating behind-the-scenes stories.
