Trivia to tide you over

Since there's no Bruins hockey to keep us content until Wednesday, here's a little trivia to keep everyone occupied.

The 1960-61 season was a dismal one for the B's. They finished worst in the league with a 15-42-13 record (2-25 on the road) and lost former coach Buck Boucher to throat cancer just three weeks after he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. One game against the Blackhawks ended in a fight after a Boston fan nailed goalie Glenn Hall with a light bulb.

But the season had a bright spot for Willie O'Ree...the first black player in NHL history...who scored his first career goal.

Question: What team did he score it against?
Bonus points: On what date did he do it?

That would be the Canadiens (Charlie Hodge), on January 1, 1961.

I AM SO FULL FROM TURKEY!
