I was watching a bit of the NHL Network's Pioneers series a few days ago. It was a half hour bio/interview with Mr. Goalie, Glenn Hall. Near the end of it, I saw this...
It was shown without any description or reference to it, simply a highlight of Hall's career. I just had know what the heck was going on in this clip. From what I could derive, the game took place on February 16, 1969 when Minnesota visited St. Louis and the Blues won 6-0.
At the start, Hall is seen bolting from the net on what can only be assumed is a delayed-penalty on Minnesota.
He then beats North Star goaltender Garry Bauman with a fairly long shot.
Crisp then celebrates with Red Berenson.
To top it all off, this goal was a shorthanded marker. The boxscore shows the goal as follows;
STL : Crisp 5 (Hall, Plager Ba) (SH) 9:38
An extremely rare first assist for a goaltender. Hall recorded only three assists with St. Louis and only 10 over his entire career, but at least one of them was a real beauty.
