  • Quicksilver ballet

    Bad News Bilodeau and the baby bulls. They had a pretty good team that last year. Pat Riggin,Rob Ramage,Mike Gartner,Rick Vaive etc. Paul Henderson must’ve had some laughs with that group.

  • O.C.

    Cam Connor Notes:

    When I was I kid, I remember Cam Connor was a plug who was inserted into the lineup and scored an overtime goal that wasn’t pretty, but sunk the Leafs… his only point of the playoffs.

    Dave Hodge was clearly ticked. When there was an ugly goal in a later series he said it wasn’t as bad as “that Cam Connor goal.”

    Cam played few games that year for MTL, and fewer in the playoffs. He did not play in the final. There was some kind of rally by the players because the NHL rules were that you don’t get your name on the cup unless played a min number of regular season games or a game in the final series.

    Never heard how that ended up… the year was 1979.

    That was also the last season for Ken Dryden. The last year of the WHA too. Too bad… woulda been cool to see Gretzky match up once against Ken Dryden.
