Boston's practice goaltender loaned to Montreal to replace injured Jacques Plante in 2nd period, March 13, 1958. (Boston 7, Montreal 3) At the time of his appearance with Montreal, he was employed as a mathematician with the U.S. Air Force. Served as Boston's practice goaltender for 13 seasons.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
