What do you think was the average age of the 6 guys on the ice for that face-off? Easily over 30, wouldn't you say? Sawchuk in net. Red Kelly took the draw and won it. He sent it up the left boards to Bob Pulford. Pulford takes a couple of strides and sends a cross ice pass to the Cheif on the move on the right boards. Armstrong moves down the right side and hits the empty net to make it 3-1. Also on the ice for the Buds, Allen Stanley and Tim Horton. My Grandfather goes crazy (a man who showed me emotion maybe twice in his life, the other being when Henderson scored in game 8 in 72). Of course I'm not old enough to actually remember all that, but I've heard the story enough it's like I can remember being there.

You can all groan and wish you didn't have to be reminded of that date, but it was a great day for me. Even if I was only 2 years and 7 weeks old.
