Chicago Black Hawks Playing Hard Against The Boston Bruins – 1958
The Black Hawks Glen Skov (14) is sprawled out on the ice and continues to play the puck as Bruins winger Larry Regan sees an opportunity ahead if he does not lose his balance. Lorne Ferguson of the Black Hawks is in pursuit of Regan.
The Bruins would win this game 2-0.
A couple of things to note to the modern hockey fan besides the fact that the players did not wear helmets: The Chicago Stadium arena had wood slat boards. When you hear the term today “the boards” most people picture one contiguous piece of material made of composite plastic with a bunch of advertising spread on it. This is the way hockey was originally played.
The arena appears dark in the background because of the flash photography involved in order to capture the high speed action.
