Hartford Whalers

The Whalers won their last game at the Hartford Civic Center 2-1 against the Tamby Bay Lightning. The Whalers were Hartford's NHL franchise, playing at the Civic Center from the mid-1970s until the end of the 1997 NHL season, when they moved to North Carolina, citing fewer fans at games, less corporate support and a decaying arena.Courant File Photo
