from Joe Pelletier’s Greatest Hockey Legends,
March 21st, 1991. Quebec’s Ron Tugnutt stopped 70 Bruins shots, including 12 in overtime, to give the Nordiques a 3-3 tie at Boston.
The Bruins’ 73 shots were 10 short of the NHL record set by Boston in a 1941 game against Chicago. Ray Bourque set a NHL single game record with 19 shots himself!
Tugnutt’s performance was so impressive even some of the Bruins’ players skated over to congratulate him.
