Flyers Look Tough Again

STRONG POINTS: Start with Bernie Parent in goal. There is none better. Move out to Bobby Clarke, the Hart Trophy winner. The NHL’s All Star center is hockey’s hardest worker.

Just 39 seconds into the second period Monahan lost his balance during hectic action in the Vancouver zone and went sliding into the net. Somehow the deflector that goes around the bottom of the net was raised about three inches above ice level. Monahan slid into it where it forms a point in the center of the…
