Flat Out: New York Rangers goaltender takes a first-period moment in January of 1968 after suffering a Boston shot to the knee. He soon got up and back at them, helping the Rangers to beat the Bruins by a score of 2-1. That’s defenceman Harry Howell looking on. A 20-year-old Ranger rookie named Walt Tkaczuk made his NHL debut in the game. TAY-chuck is how you pronounce it, The New York Times advised next day, noting that he played a total of two minutes, administering three hits on three different Bruins. The Times: “He didn’t know their names, he admitted later.”
