That’s Terry Sawchuk in goal for Los Angeles, with Minnesota’s Bill Goldsworthy (#8) bearing down on the puck. His linemate (#19) is the late Bill Masterton. This photo was taken Nov 7, about 9 weeks before Masterton’s death. I believe the other Los Angeles forward in the photo to be Ted Taylor.
For Los Angeles (aside from Sawchuk), #11 is Lowell MacDonald and the captain is Bob Wall. Behind Masterton, we can see the great Bill White. This is the season where White was +17 and Wall was -9. Looks like a few empty seats for this one.
A win today and the Edmonton Oilers can breathe for the first time since summer. A delightful (and completely unexpected) little run here has Oilers fans thinking it’s time for another 2006. I don’t think they have the horses and no one has told me when Lubo returns, but then again it didn’t occur to me to ask the question.
