Sanford's formal education was put on permanent hold in the wake of the Boston Bruins desire to integrate the young sniper into their line-up.

He evolved into a steady performer who was good for about 30 points per season.

The only goal of the game was scored one minute 25 seconds after it started. It was caged by shifty Ed Sandford.

Ed Sandford was St.Mikes top forward performer. Not alone becasue of his game-winning goal, but because he was a going concern all the way.

Rookie Eddie Sandford gave a battling display, looked better than at any time this season against Toronto. He duelled most of the game with Kennedy and it ended up with Kennedy getting thumbed with a minor penalty.

The second lead was provided by Eddie Sandford at 8:52 of the third period. Sandford dug the puck out of the corner, back to Leo Boivin, and was in front of the crease to deflect Boivin's shot from the point into the corner.
