Today in Glenn Hall history -- Tuesday, March 29, 1966

Boston 2 at Chicago 4

The Black Hawks moved to within two points of league-leading Montreal with their 4-2 victory over Boston tonight. The Hawks opened with a 2-0 lead on a first period goal by Lou Angotti and a second period marker by Doug Mohns. The pesky Bruins battled back, with Ron Stewart and Johnny Bucyk beating Glenn Hall to even the score. But Bill Hay restored the Chicago lead later in the second, and Phil Esposito notched his 27th of the season to round out the scoring.

This was a memorable game for Hall as he drew a ten-minute misconduct in the second period. The puck was sent down the ice by the Bruins into the Chicago zone. Linesman Brian Sopp signalled icing and Hall relaxed. Out of Hall's vision, the other lineseman, John D'Amico, waived off the icing call. The puck bounced crazily in front of Hall's crease and Johnny Bucyk swooped in to bat the puck past the unsuspecting Hall. Mr. Goalie chased after the officials all the way to the penalty timer's bench but received no satisfaction -- just the misconduct penalty. Trivia fans will note that Pat Stapleton served the penalty for Hall.
