    I am looking for an old box score: Saturday Night February 13, 1982 Montreal Canadiens vs. Winnipeg Jets, Montreal Forum-Final Score was 7-3 and Steve Shutt had 2 goals in the 3rd peiord.

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Generally speaking, you can usually find old boxscores in various newspaper archives (Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, NY Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, LA Times), available by individual subscription or free access through your local library, depending on which newspapers they subscribe to.

    Here's the Winnipeg-Montreal game summary from both the 14 Feb 1982 Toronto Star and 15 Feb 1982 Globe & Mail editions:
