Above is shown Tiger Bill Howard felicitating Huskie backstopper Rick Best. Both performed excellently. The fans were loud in their praise for Howard because he was a miracle man in front of the meshes. Besides, he played the match with a partially "frozen" hand. Drugs were applied in this case because of a previous injury. Fans enjoyed the big paw episode which preceded the game delayed 25 minutes because of Howard's patching by the Tech physician (Gagnon of Gazette)." A report from the Monday, February 8 issue of the newspaper indicates that Best helped Tech to a 3-1 vicotry on Friday, while Tony Esposito was in goal for a 10-1 victory for the Saturday game.]
