Which was Mother's Day that year...

I was 12, and my folks let me watch the game on their TV in their 
bedroom.....I (like so many) was a HUGE B's fan back then....

Because it was so hard to get a ticket back then, I had to settle for New 
England Whalers games in '72 when they created the WHA. I was an audiophile 
even then as getting John Carlson's signature on my NE Whalers vs 
Philadelphia Blazers program was as important as getting "Pie" 
McKenzie's......(My first pro hockey game....15th birthday...) I was a Sox 
fan first.....empty stadium single admission double header in '66 vs the KC

WBZ did NOT have a copy of Fred Cusick's call but luckily Globe reporter
Kevin Paul Dupont did

This was the last game Cusick ever called on radio - he moved to WSBK the
next year
