I actually checked this out and I don't think I agree.


Hainsworth held the Bruins to one goal each of the first 2 games on the road. He then allowed 3 in the 3rd game.

Absolutely does not look bad on Hainsworth, if anything it adds to his record setting season.

Hainsworth held the Bruins to a single goal in each road game but his teammates failed to light the lamp at the other end of the ice and the series reverted to the Forum, with Boston holding a 2-0 lead.

Playing in front of hometown fans in the third game, Aurel Joliat scored one goal and assisted on another but the Bruins potted three on the night, sweeping the series before moving on to defeat the New York Rangers for the Stanley Cup.
