I won Braves tickets from Guy Mainella in October 1971 and still have the 
program from the game: Braves vs. Providence Reds. The Braves were coached 
by Bep Guidolin and had a few guys on the roster who went on to NHL careers, 
including Terry O'Reilly and goalie Dan Bouchard, who had many good seasons 
with the Flames after being taken in the expansion draft. The Reds were a 
California Golden Seals farm team; 40 years later I don't recall much about 
any of the players on their roster except for goalie Marcel Paille, who was 
an ancient former Rangers goalie (from the early '60s) who was playing out 
the string in the AHL.
