The 1982–83 Quebec Nordiques season was the Nordiques fourth season in the National Hockey League. In the 1981–82 season, Quebec recorded their first winning season in the NHL, as they had a record of 33-31-16, earning 82 points, in which they finished fourth in the Adams Division, qualifying for the post-season for the second consecutive season. The Nordiques upset the heavily favoured Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins to represent the Adams Division in the Wales Conference finals, however, the New York Islanders swept Quebec in the Conference finals, preventing the club from making the Stanley Cup finals.

Off-seasonEdit

During the off-season, the Nordiques announced that they would not have a team captain for the 1982–83 season, as Andre Dupont only had the position as an interim basis for the second half of the 1981–82 season after team captain Robbie Ftorek was dealt to the New York Rangers. Expectations were high for the club after their improbable playoff run, in which the team was only one round away from a berth in the Stanley Cup finals.

Regular seasonEdit

The Nordiques would have a mediocre regular season, as they hovered around the .500 mark for the entire year. Quebec would set a team record for victories, winning 34 games, however, the team finished with two fewer points than the previous season, as they finished the year with a 34-34-12 record, earning 80 points, and their third consecutive playoff appearance, as they finished in fourth place in the Adams Division.

Offensively, the Nordiques were led by Peter Stastny, who led the club with 124 points, and was second in the league scoring race, finishing behind Wayne Gretzky of the Edmonton Oilers. Michel Goulet had a breakout season, scoring a team record 57 goals, which was the fourth highest total in the league. Goulet added 48 assists, earning 105 points, which was good for eighth in the NHL. Anton Stastny scored 32 goals and 92 points, while Marian Stastny scored 36 goals and 79 points despite missing 20 games due to injuries. On the blueline, Dave Pichette led the scoring, recording 24 points in 53 games, while Normand Rochefort earned 23 points in 62 games. Dale Hunter once again provided the team toughness, recording 206 penalty minutes.

In goal, Dan Bouchard was the number one goalie, winning a team best 20 games, while posting a team low GAA of 4.01, as well as recording the only shutout Quebec had during the season.

PlayoffsEdit

The Nordiques opened the 1983 Stanley Cup playoffs with a best of five Adams Division quarter-final series against the Boston Bruins. The Nordiques eliminated Boston in seven games in the Division finals the previous season. The Bruins had the best record in the Adams Division, posting a record of 50-20-10, earning 110 points, which was 30 more than the Nordiques. The series opened with two games at the Boston Garden, and the Bruins squeaked out an overtime victory in the first game, winning 4-3, then held off the Nordiques in the second game for a 4-2 win to take an early 2-0 series lead. The series moved to Le Colisee for the next two games, and the Nordiques staved off elimination in the third game, defeating the Bruins 2-1 to cut their series lead in half. Quebec and Boston would play another close game in the fourth game, however, it was Boston who would emerge victorious, defeating the Nordiques 2-1 to win the series in four games.
