March 11, 1994 – MERRY CHRISTMAS Lax Fans. You’ve heard about it, you’ve seen footage, now here’s the game in it’s incomplete entirety – IN COLOR
Detroit Turbos vs. Philadelphia Wings from the Spectrum in Philadelphia!
Pay close attention to player introductions. Steve “The Manimal” Govett inadvertently gives the plexi and the fans, a REALLY close look at his face. 150 stitches later, and because of the “blood rule” he’s back in the line-up wearing Joe Gold’s jersey SCORING his first goal as a Philadelphia Wing. What was that MasterCard catch phrase? Watching your Rookie teammate split his head open during pre-game intros?
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety.
