If I remember correctly, D'Arcy played on both the '72-'73 and '77-'78 teams. I know he was there in the late '70s....my favorite player as a teenager.

Always liked Keating and his "dance" after he scored a goal.

About the photo, the Coliseum didn't get its blue wall and railings and the funky numbers in the lower arena and the red railings in the upper arena until the 1973-74 season.

Is the bottom photo from the 88-89 preseason? I'd swear 87-88 was the year they wore white helmets for a short time at home. The first set of 88-89 homes had script "Komets" on the front, with a small state logo in the corner.
