Whalers Ralph Backstrom steps to the right before firing off a shot that got past Cleveland goalie Bob Johnson at the Hartford Civic Center on April 10, 1976. The puck is to the right and slightly above Backstrom's left skate. The goal came just 72 seconds into the game. The Whalers ended up shocking the favored Cleveland Crusaders in a three game sweep.
