Hockey Feet

April 27, 1983

This was not the greatest day in the history of Boston sports. Nor was it the worst.

But, as days go …

For one thing, the Bruins lost to the New York Islanders in the first game of their conference final series. The B’s vowed to do better in Game 2.

Then there were the Red Sox, getting shut down in Seattle, by 44-year-old Gaylord Perry. The 7-6 decision  brought Perry’s lifetime record against the Red Sox to 20-5, with a 2.51 ERA.

Then, to cap it all off, the Patriots took Tony Eason with the 14th pick of the NFL draft.

Ah, but it could have been worse; the Colts took John Elway with the top pick in the draft.
