Billy Hagen with the Flyers first marker. Joe Plati and Al Sparks tally for the Burins. Both puck stoppers – Bobby Rutkoske of the Bruins and Mike Schlimgen of the Flyers with outstanding games in net! Special kudos goes out to Bobby Rutkoske, who mad two sliding, pads stacked saves! The Bruins were outshot 2-1 by the Flyers. This game would defintely have had a different outcome, if not for Mr. Rutkoske!
