The Friends of Eddie Coyle was released in 1973 but the scene was filmed late in the 72 season. It captures the atmosphere of the old barn. The print has just be remastered and will been shown at a Boston theater next month. Director Peter Yates decided to use handheld cameras and wireless mikes which was unheard of back then so the fans behind Mitchum and Boyle were NOT extras, they were simply fans at a game. The only thing that is not authentic is the organ music. John Kiley the long time organist at Boston Garden HATED hockey and would go to a concession stand for coffee while the game was being played. Kiley was forced to start playing during games when the new owners 'The Jacobs Brothers' showed up around 1975.
