Red Fisher's articles

Red Fisher will be writing a series of articles in trhe Saturday sports section of the Montreal Gazette. I'm sure someone knows what the link is. They will deal with 10 stories he has covered over his 49 years covering the Habs. Love him or hate him, he has seen a lot of history and his insights are worth reading. Today's deals with Red Storey's last game in the NHL [famous ref for those who sadly don't recognize the name]. To keep this short, a few non calls in Mtl.'s favor appeared to cost Chicago a key playoff game and allowed Nos Glorieux to go on to win their 5th consecutive Cup. Clarence Campbell criticized Storey publicly after the game and Storey figured, the hell with it, I'm quitting, as the criticism was quite personal in nature. If you're interested in the history of the team, it's worth a look. If rocketlives is out there, I have a question about the incident. The way my father told me the story years ago, fans rushed Storey on the ice, and if not for Doug Harvey, it could've gotten pretty serious. Apparently Harvey took his stick to the first few fans and that discouraged the rest. This isn't mentionned in the article but I'd be curious if you remember this.

Yesterday was the famous "too many on the ice" vs Bruins in '79

Today is 1971, Bruins beat by Habs (Dryden's first, as a "pre-rookie")

My pleasure

Bill, the last time we discussed this game, it seems a few of us were confused as to the order of scoring or who got the winner. [imagine that] I can't even remember what it was we couldn't remember.
The article confirms, that Cournoyer opened the scoring for Mtl., Boston got 5 straight. Henri Richard got one back late in the second. Beliveau scored 2 early in the third. Lemaire tied it up, Ferguson got the winner and The Big M got the insurance goal.

You can't access them anymore because the free articles on the web were a trial thing. It was mentioned on the Gazette site that it's temporary and that eventually only subscribers will be able to access all the articles.

Not really much to do with the story but I wish I could've seen this one:

A goal by Ted Lindsay tied the score and then, with 90 seconds left, a hipcheck by Canadiens defenceman Junior Langlois sent Bobby Hull skyward.

"I'm gonna cut your damned head off," Lindsay stormed.

"You make your first shot the best one you ever had," Storey told him, "because this is the first time we've both had a stick, and I'm gonna cut you in two."
Nice Job Red!

Takes alot of guts to stand up to Ted like that!

Storey played pro football and towered over Lindsay, lucky for Lindsay he had a stick.
