Welcome to the innagural edition of the EOTP Quiz.

Here are the rules and information you need to get going: Contest rules.

Without further ado, here is your first question:

Not long after the 1972 Summit Series, a NHL GM suggested that NHL pros had an unimaginative powerplay and could stand to learn from the Russian's system of slick passing outside the defensive formation to create good scoring chances.

However this strategy had already been used in North America by a particular hockey club in the 1950s.

Name the team & powerplay unit (all 5 players) that employed this strategy.

Bonus points/Hint: This powerplay unit was so dominant that they forced an NHL rule change. What particular rule was changed and what was it changed to?
