Boston pulled everything out of their bag of tricks to break the deadlock but woe hand- cuffed by erratic shooting and Crazier1! acrobatics. Crozier said later he was "bushed" after the first period and only the fact that he was tired and his reflexes couldn't respond quickly enough enabled Smith's shot to get by him. He'd have trouble convincing Boston stars Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr that his reflexes were slow. He robbed both play- ers in the closing momenta and so frustrated Esposito that the centre threw his stick in exas- peratlon, narrowly missing linesman Ron Hoggarth.
