Always.

Coincidentally, due to this pandemic, I had the opportunity to get a home workout space set up in the basement, and in doing so stumbled upon a dvd box set of classic red wings games. Might have to fire this one up later tonight.

NHL.com posted to Twitter yesterday a clip from 1957 of Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto commenting on a Bruins-Habs game during an intermission.

 

Right at the end he says it's a championship game. So Stanley Cup final series after Boston eliminated Det? Probably why Sid Abel was hanging around. Could have been April 15, game 5, the only game Boston won: final 2-0

You may be right - although Game 5 was April 14 not April 15. I had thought it was a Habs home game due to the dark uniforms which before 1970 were usually worn by the home team, but looking again no Canadiens logo at centre. Still not sure though why Yogi and Rizzuto would be in Boston on the 14th. The Yankees seemed to have a single-game season opener on April 16 at home to Washington, before starting a 3-game series in Boston on the 18th.  Maybe in town to do some advance promotional work for the season? But I don't think so.

A better guess, even though I said 1957 originally, may be Game 4 of the 1958 Stanley Cup Finals, also between Boston and Montreal. The Bruins won Game 4 on April 15, 3-1. The Yankees were in town for a 3-game series versus the Red Sox between April 15-April 17.  Yankees opened the season with a 3-0 win the afternoon of the 15th, would make sense to then take in Game 4 at night. I had said 1957 because Yogi said it was 12th year. My mistake was counting 1946 as his 1st year - he only played 7 games that season.

well, I was going to go through the Canadiens roster to check for changes between 57 and 58 since they ran the roster over the interview at one point, but there is an easier way. He mentions Abel had become coach of the Wings - which pins it to the 57-58 season so you are right. Sid took over 3/4 of the way through. The uniform thing does seem wrong for Boston though. I'm pretty sure in the 60's at least the Habs wore Red at at home and the Bruins wore dark. I don't remember either arena not having a logo at center ice, that part is before my time. It could be a game in Montreal if was one of the early ones before the season stated. There were a few days between the end of ST and the 1st game and there would have been good train service to Montreal in those days. IIRC, junkets to Montreal were a pretty common thing for East Coasters back in the day. Uniforms aside though, the more I look at it the less I think it is the forum. I thougth when I first looked that the arena looked wide, but on second view not as wide and deep as I remember the forum to have been. Maybe they were wearing light at home in those years. As you noted, the NHL has switched at least a couple of times on that.

The March 26 game was the Wings-Avs 4th matchup of the season, the 2nd in Detroit. Anyone remember why nothing really happened in the November 13, 1996 Colorado 4 Detroit 1 game, was Lemieux missing or something? It looks like their was a dustup with 4 seconds left in that game, with Deadmarsh, Foote, Martin Lapointe and Vladdie all picking up fighting or roughing penalties.

EDIT: Just checked the boxscore. Lemieux did indeed miss that game.
