 Wingman: Bidding on LeRoy Neiman’s vivid interpretation of a Detroit goal started at US$1,000 at the latest sale of hockey art and artifact by Montreal’s Classic Auctions, but this edition of his 1973 serigraph “Red Goal” didn’t find a buyer by the time the bazaar closed last week. That’s Red Wings centre Henry Boucha unmistakably, number 16, with his trademark headband, but his happy teammates are harder to identify. Tim Ecclestone? Nick Libett? The referee has a bit of a Ron Wicks air to him — unless it’s a Lloyd Gilmour look?

Either way, it’s believed that this work is unique in hockey art: the only known depiction of a referee signalling a delayed penalty subsequently annulled by a goal being scored.
