Penultimate “Exactly 50 Years” Notes For Now

May 2, 2021

Exactly 50 years ago, on Sunday May 2, 1971, again, as in game 5, this time in the third period of regulation play, the great player, Bobby Hull scored the game’s decisive goal off a faceoff as the Chicago Blackhawks advanced to a 1965 Stanley Cup Final redux vs the Montreal Canadiens.

They won their semi-final series vs the New York Rangers while the Habs defeated the Minnesota North Stars in 6 games.

All these (50) years later, only the Canadiens, among the ’71 semi-finalists, who now may avoid first place Toronto (Maple Leafs) in the North Division first round, are virtually certain or even favored to make the NHL Playoffs.

It is almost certain the Rangers will not qualify, very likely “Chi” is out and the North Stars franchise, now the Stars of Dallas, trail the fourth place Nashville Predators by 3 points in the battle for their division’s final ‘offs spot.

2020 NHL runner up, Dallas, has a game in hand.
