NHL 50 Years Notes And Update

April 27, 2021

Tonight marks the exact 50 year anniversary of the game 5 Chicago Blackhawks’ win, vs the New York Rangers, in their semi-final series.

“Chi” won the game on the great Bobby Hull’s goal, “off a faceoff,” in the first overtime period.

In the other NHL “semi,” that year, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Minnesota North Stars in six games. However, it is noteworthy that it was the first series in which an expansion NHL West team won an ‘offs game, vs an established NHL East team.

This season, while each still has a chance, it is unlikely even very unlikely, that either the Blackhawks or Rangers will make the playoffs.

Montreal not only figures to make the ‘offs as their division’s 4th place team, but likely will face their long time rival, Toronto Maple Leafs in the playoffs for the first time in 42 years.

Sadly, it will occur, if it does, without anywhere near full fans capacity.

A finalist last season the North Stars franchise now in Dallas as the Stars are in a battle for the fourth and final spot in its division.
