Gilles Gilbert played goal in Boston for that game. Gilbert was, of course, a classic "when he's hot, he's very, very hot" goalie.
Like the other games in that 75-76 series, the Soviet's were totally outshot by the opposition, but Tretiak was well, Tretiak.
Ken Hodge was playing his last year in Boston and he'd fallen so out of favor with Don Cherry that he ended up on the 4th line with Doug Gibson and Hank Nowak.
The other bit of Boston note for me is that the Bruin's defense after Brad Park and Dallas Smith consisted of journeymen Darryl Edestrand, Gary Doak , and Al Sims. Ugh.
