25 Years Ago Tonight: October 11, 1980

So where were you 25 years ago tonight?

Were you at the Coliseum? If so, you planned to see the raising of the First Cup banner.

Due to a strike by local 1921 of the carpenter union, the game was played without public address announcements or an organ. The crowd attempted to sing the national anthem a cappella.

The Isles beat the Bruins 5-2. The Cup banner was raised a week later before a 5-5 tie with Edmonton.
