What could be better for a Ranger fan back in the day ? The Blueshirts are hosting the Bruins at MSG, it's Eddie Johnstone's birthday and John Davidson is donning his wacky Lone Ranger Mask !
This particular archival footage of the Lone Ranger mask took even The Big Man by surprise as he thought he possessed only one game with J.D wearing this bizarre piece of fiberglass face protection in his collection.
The Mouth was so ecstatic when he found this video gem, he couldn't wait to share the footage with HIS fellow Ranger fans of this fondly remembered goalie mask that eventually cracked and broke and probably now resides deep below some compost heap in Staten Island.
The video featured here also boasts some great New York Ranger hockey from March 2nd, 1980 as the Boston Bruins come to town in what turned out to be a tight knit battle.
The game is a close checking affair despite some isolated defensive breakdowns which are shown in the video.
It's also a game where Ranger Dean Talafous notches his 200th NHL point.
