1978 NHL Playoff Game Ah, the late 1970s when men were men and hockey was entertaining! (Look at how many players didn't wear helmets!) This is a ten-minute clip of a Stanley Cup semifinal game from May 11, 1978 with the Boston Bruins hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at old Boston Garden. Bob Cole of Hockey Night in Canada provides the play-by-play description. The Bruins won the game 6-3 and took the series four games to one.

GREAT action!

I don't watch NHL anymore but the action sure was great in the old days.

If you noticed there were no advertisments on the boards, the players weren't as big as today, and the goalies didn't were as much padding. Still you had to love Gerry Cheever's mask.

Eric is right! Old-time hockey. No intrusive advertising on the boards or on the ice. Goalies didn't look like the Michelin Man.

Gerry Cheevers is credited with being the first NHL goalie to decorate his mask. It wasn't intended to be art. It was supposed to show how many stitches he'd have if he was playing bare-faced.

Fantastic clip. Excellent picture and especially sound quality...makes you think you were watching a clip of last night's game (except, as mentioned, for the lack of helmets, goalie Michelin man padding and ads on the boards). I had forgotten just how economical Park was in his style of play. No wonder he was so good for so long. And boy do I miss seeing Schmautzie out there.

Even though this game was played nearly 33 years ago, as far as I can tell, only two people shown in this clip are no longer with us: Phildelphia coach Fred Shero (died in 1990) and Boston trainer Frosty Forristal (died in 1994). This was Shero's final game as coach of the Flyers.
