Montana Magic vs. Salt Lake Golden Eagles, March 11, 1984

The Montana Magic and its parent league, the Central Hockey League, were owned by the NHL. Billings was the final city added to the league before it folded in 1984. Five teams competed in the 1983-1984 season: The Magic (formerly the Wichita Wind, affiliated with the Edmonton Oilers and St. Louis Blues), the Colorado Flames (affiliated with the Calgary Flames), the Indianapolis Checkers (affiliated with the New York Islanders), the Tulsa Oilers (ironically, not affiliated with the Edmonton Oilers, but rather the Toronto Maple Leafs) and the Salt Lake Golden Eagles (shown above, affiliated with the Minnesota North Stars).
