I'm not exactly surprised, since I found an error in the NHL record as late as the mid-1980s, and I imagine that things were harder back in the early 1960s.
From my site:

From the Gettsyburg Times: "The Jets opened up a three-goal lead at 23 seconds of the third period when Robert Picard took a pass from (Dale) Hawerchuk in front of the goal and went over substitute goalie Pelle Lindbergh."
Since Froese only had one (or two) losses in the entire season, this one was pretty easy to find with a bit of microfilm.
