Famous Hockey Photo It looks like an image created by Hollywood, but it's a real sports photo: Bruised and bloodied Boston Bruins' goalie Sugar Jim Henry shakes hands with bruised and bloodied Montreal Canadiens' star Maurice (Rocket) Richard after the latter scored the winning goal in overtime to give his club a seven-game victory in the 1952 Stanley Cup semifinals. Richard had earlier left the game with a concussion but returned to dramatically score the game-winning tally. Hockey goalies didn't wear protective masks in 1952. Men were men back then.

Ed Wynn on Whats My Line Comedian Ed Wynn appears as the mystery guest on What's My Line on April 18, 1954. (It was Easter Sunday, hence the Easter Bunny masks worn by the panelists.)

Piggy Wiggy Flu the 2009 Swine Flu Outbreak This is intended only to shed light on the hysteria that the Swine Flu has brought about world wide. We went through this spoof back in 1976 and recently with the bird flu epidemic just a few years ago...remember?

USSR Wins 1956 Olympic Hockey Until the 1950s, Canada could send virtually any amateur team to Europe and win the annual International Ice Hockey Federation world championship tourney. (For example, Canada beat Denmark 49-0 in one game at the 1949 event using a team from Sault Ste. Marie, ON!) The Soviet Union took an interest in Olympic sports in the early 1950s. They surprisingly beat Canada 7-2 at the 1954 world tourney in their debut. In 1955 Canada sent the national amateur champs from Penticton, BC and won the championship by beating the USSR 5-0. With the national senior amateur championship team from Kitchener, ON representing Canada at the 1956 Olympics at Cortina, Italy, Canada was supposed to win another Olympic championship. Surprisingly they finished third after losing to both the USA and USSR. This clip shows the Soviets' 4-0 win over the USA and their 2-0 win over Canada. Canada's goalie was Denis Brodeur--the father of NHL great Martin Brodeur. Men were men back then: Few wore helmets and goalies didn't wear masks.

When Hockey Goalies Wore No Masks This is a photo of Montreal Canadiens' goalie Jacques Plante. It was taken on November 1, 1959, a few minutes after Plante's bare face met a slapshot fired by Andy Bathgate of the New York Rangers. Plante doesn't have a beard--that's congealed blood on his face! Each NHL team only carried one goalie in those days. Plante refused to return to the net unless he was allowed to wear his newfangled fiberglass face mask.

Al Pacino Mug Shot 1961 Did you know Al Pacino was busted in 1961? Police pulled over a suspicious vehicle on January 7, 1961. It was driven by 20-year-old Pacino. Two passengers and Pacino were all wearing masks--and a loaded gun was found in the car. Apparently Pacino never was convicted of anything relating to this incident.

Gerry Cheevers One of hockey's most identifiable goalie masks belonged to Gerry Cheevers of the Boston Bruins. His make-believe 'stitches' were a statement: They represented the real stitches that would have scarred Cheevers' face had he not worn the mask. Every time a puck struck Cheevers' mask, Boston's trainer Frosty Forrestall would add another row of stitches to it.

Banana-Blade Hockey Sticks The blades on hockey sticks used to be completely straight. In 1927, Cy Denneny of the Ottawa Senators briefly experimented with a blade he had curved using hot water. Nothing came of it. Four decades later, Stan Mikita of the Chicago Blackhawks partially broke the blade of one of his sticks during a practice. He took a shot with it for kicks. Voila! The puck did some fancy dancing through the air much like a knuckleball does. Mikita and teammate Bobby Hull began experimenting with different versions--some with ridiculous curves they dubbed 'banana blades.' Although they had some obvious drawbacks--accurate passing and backhand shots were much more difficult--the warped pieces of wood immediately became formidable weapons. Of course, the banana blades were universally despised by goalies because the netminders had no idea where the puck was headed. (In all honesty, neither did the shooters!) In an era when some goalies didn't wear masks, there was a serious risk of injury, so the extreme blades were outlawed. Today a curve of only 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch is permitted in organized hockey. A hockey ref once told me that if you put a dime on its edge and it fits under the blade of a stick, the curve is illegal.
