For Your Viewing Pleasure...

...we have a nice 10-minute package of highlights from the epic game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Philadelphia Flyers played on December 30th, 1981. Some observations:

  • Yes, that is in fact Don Cherry doing the colour commentary. I'm not sure who the play-by-play guy is.
  • Long pants on hockey players was not a good look.
  • In a minor piece of irony, the Flyers' netminder in this game, Pete Peeters, is now the Oilers' goaltending coach.
  • That Gretzky kid could play a little bit.

Roll clip!
