‘Bat’ Game

from MSG Network,
In 1975, we were in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Flyers, and one of the games was at Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo. I don’t know if someone brought it into the building or if it sneaked in, but in the first period there was a bat dive-bombing from the roof throughout the game. When the bat came close to the ice, I can still remember at one point in the first period Flyers goalie Bernie Parent was swinging at it with his stick. It was a real distraction, not to mention the fog that was in the building because it was so hot in there in those days.
