Kate Smith Philadelphia Flyers Good Luck Charm One of sport's quirky and quaint traditions is the Philadelphia Flyers' use of Kate Smith as a good luck charm. The NHL team has a remarkable record whenever her version of God Bless America is played before games. Here is the late Kate making a surprise live appearance before a game in the 1976 Stanley Cup finals. (It didn't help; Montreal swept the Flyers in four straight games that spring.)

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.

Viktor Tikhonov - USSR Hockey Coach One of the most familiar faces of Soviet Union hockey was the dour puss of coach Viktor Tikhonov who ran the Central Red Army club team and the Soviet National team with an iron fist and almost unchecked success for 20 years. Tikhonov was born on June 4, 1930. As a player, Tikhonov was a defenceman with the Soviet Air Force and Dynamo Moscow clubs, but he wasn't well known internationally until he became the head coach of both the Central Red Army team and the Soviet Union's national team in 1977. At one point Red Army won 13 consecutive Soviet Elite League titles--which isn't all that surprising considering Tikhonov had the authority of a Red Army general and could immediately draft any player into the armed forces if he showed promise. The USSR won eight IIHF world titles under Tikhonov plus Olympic gold medals in 1984, 1988 and 1992. The USSR's national team also won the 1979 Challenge Cup and 1981 Canada Cup. Tikhonov had power over his players' lives and used it to control every aspect of his team. They routinely trained together for 50 weeks per year while living in army barracks. Canadian hockey great Phil Esposito said the so-called Soviet "amateurs" were more professional than NHL players. Humorless and ruthless, Tikhonov was known for his dictatorial coaching style. He exercised control over his players' lives. His expected absolute obedience--or else. His players quietly called him "the last Stalinist." With tongue-in-cheek humor, western media often referred to Tikhonov as "Chuckles." Tikhonov constantly feared his players would defect if they ever got the slightest chance. Anyone he merely suspected of defecting would be left off teams planning to travel outside the Iron Curtain. In 1991, for instance, he cut Pavel Bure, Valeri Zelepukin, Evgeny Davydov, and Vladimir Konstantinov just before the 1991 Canada Cup. All of them had been drafted by NHL teams, and Tikhonov suspected they were flight risks. Even after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Tikhonov stayed on as the national team coach of Russia for a few more years, but the newer players rebelled against his harsh authoritarian ways. Tikhonov mellowed slighty before going into retirement in 1996. After his retirement, Tikhonov lobbied the Russian government for more attention and better financing for the national team. His grandson plays on the current Russian national squad. Tikhonov died in November 2014.

NHL Goalie Takes Puck in the Face - 1959 I posted this video in 2012 but I discovered its source was removed--so here it is again. From a 1959 Stanley Cup playoff game, Boston goalie Harry Lumley takes a backhand shot to the face from Toronto's Dick Duff. Lumley lost two teeth and was badly cut on the play. Men were men in 1959, though. The play continued as usual for about 30 seconds before Lumley froze the puck and headed to to Bruins' bench for "repairs." Lumley must have been a sight! Check out the horrified woman seated in the second row near the Boston bench: She covers her eyes!

First Goalie Mask - 1929 In 1929 Clint Benedict of the Montreal Maroons became the first goalie to wear a mask in a National Hockey League game. Benedict had suffered a broken nose in a previous game. To continue playing, Benedict commissioned a Boston leather goods company to make an experimental mask for him. The novelty didn't last very long--just one game. Benedict said the contraption obscured his view on low shots. New York Ranger goalie Charlie Rayner wore a partial mask for a few games in 1947 to protect a broken jaw, but he too complained of impaired vision and discarded it. Another dozen years would pass before NHL goalie Jacques Plante ushered in the modern goalie mask in 1959.

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.

Funny Boston Bruins Promo This short promo is probably the best of the bunch produced by the Boston Bruins in 2008. It gives clear guidance that Bruins fans should not date Montreal fans.

Manon Rheaume - Female Goalie On September 23, 1992, 20-year-old female goalie Manon Rheaume played one period of an NHL exhibition game for the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning versus the St. Louis Blues. She allowed two goals on nine shots. Lightning general manager Phil Esposito openly admitted that Rheaume's appearance was a publicity stunt.
