The 1984–85 Edmonton Oilers season was the Oilers' sixth season in the NHL, and they were coming off a Stanley Cup championship in 1983–84. Edmonton would win their fourth-straight Smythe Division title, and repeat as Stanley Cup champions.

Regular season[edit]

The Oilers once again scored over 400 goals in a season. The Oilers also let in 298 goals, their fewest since the 1981–82 season. The Oilers would start the season with an NHL record 15 game unbeaten streak (12–0–3).

Wayne Gretzky would earn 208 points, breaking the 200 point mark for the third time in his career, and win his fifth straight Art Ross Trophy, and his sixth straight Hart Trophy. Jari Kurri would score a career high 71 goals and 135 points, and win the Lady Byng Trophy. Paul Coffey had 121 points (37 goals-84 assists) en route to the first Norris Trophy of his career. On October 26, 1984, Coffey would be the last defenceman in the 20th Century to score four goals in one game. It occurred in a game versus the Detroit Red Wings.[1]

In goal, Grant Fuhr and Andy Moog would split time, with Fuhr leading the Oilers in wins with 26, while Moog led the team with a 3.30 GAA.

Playoffs[edit]

In the playoffs, the Oilers would sweep past the Los Angeles Kings and the Winnipeg Jets in the first 2 rounds. Edmonton would run into a bit of a problem with the Chicago Black Hawks in the Conference Finals, as the teams split the first 4 games, however, the Oilers would win the next 2 games and advance to their 3rd straight Stanley Cup Final. After dropping the opening game of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Philadelphia Flyers, the Oilers would step up their play, and win the next 4 games to win their 2nd straight Stanley Cup. Wayne Gretzky would win the Conn Smythe Trophy for the first time in his career, as he scored an NHL record 47 points (17G-30A) in the playoffs.
