Kukla's Korner Hockey

Detroit vs. Montreal

The way it was!

You will see some hockey action from the 1954 Stanley Cup Final between the Wings and Canadiens, and then it gets real good.

Host Curt Gowdy (needs some help with pronouncing Vezina) with some of the great stars from both teams plus play by play man Budd Lynch.

Oh the good ol’ days.  You could smoke in the penalty box.

The fans were different, too.  Men in ties and coats and the women in their evening gowns and fur shawls.
