A player gets tripped and looks to see if the ref caught the crime. This is a very old pattern. Plus, no one will be surprised when the guilty offender complains about the call. In other words: There is nothing new to see here. Or is there?
A special thanks to the award-winning, hockey researcher Paul Patskou for confirming that the referee in this image is Art Skov. But, better than that, Paul placed this game as being played on March 19, 1967. When it comes to hockey pictures, Paul’s a genius at deciphering the details.
