Bill, that game has my brother's claim to fame. He was there and at the final siren, he was struck with a sponge puck that someone at a higher level had tossed. My brother picked it up and threw it in the general direction of the ice. If you can get a tape of the game, you will notice that as the Russian players congratulate Tretiak, he stops and looks quickly to his left. Yes, my little brother hit the great Tretiak with a sponge puck. The kid had a good arm in those days. Another in the sordid history of my family.
