      I went looking at The Sporting News, Tor Star and Winnipeg Free
      Press for you, and no goaltenders were listed for any of the games.

      However, in the Bridgeport Post, a photo of the game shows Maniago
      making a save for the North Stars and the story states that Les
      Binkley was the goaltender.

      On Mar 21, the Lebanon Daily News shows a photo of Daley playing for
      Baltimore at Hershey. Maybe he was called up as an emergency backup
      and sat on the bench...

      And on Nov 13 in the Uniontown Evening-Standard, the Penguins
      announced Joe Daley was called up from Baltimore to play in his
      first NHL game.

      Of course, one could always call him and ask: 204-783-8430.
