page 22, near bottom of 1st column

many great goalies allowed bad goals from the neutral zone in playoffs. i am surely forgetting some, but i can think of: roy, esposito, benedict, lehman, gardiner, brodeur, osgood, dan ellis, cloutier, quick
That's good stuff, nik. This was the only playoff game Gorman's teams lost in both of those two Cup runs, combined, if I recall correctly, which is kind of remarkable. Gardiner sounds like he was an intense competitor. I guess it was Gottselig who made the bad pass that led to that 4th goal, though they don't make it entirely clear in the game report.
