Philadelphia Wings vs. Boston Blazers from February 11th, 1995 at the Boston Garden. This was the last year for this historic building.
Boston got off to their best start in team history with Ted Dowling leading the way for them offensively. Tom Carmean, Bill Edell, and Dave Robinson also were having good offensive years, with Marty O’Neill playing stellar in net.
Philadelphia, coming off their third championship, were hungry for a fourth. The Wings potent offense had Kevin Finneran, Gary Gait, Tom Marechek, and many others, with Dallas Eliuk in net.
The Blazers were leading the league with a 4-0 record, while the Wings were right behind with a 3-1 record, setting the stage for this classic matchup of rivals.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety.
