Do You Know The Story About The Net Bobby Orr Scored “The Goal” On?

  I was born in the 80′s so I first witnessed Bobby Orr’s “The Goal” about 16 years after it was already in the history books. That being said, raised as a Boston Bruins fan, Orr’s Stanley Cup winning goal in 1970 is burned into my, and Boston’s, collective memory forever. That’s why there’s a statue of this special moment outside of the TD Garden. But what...

Photo Of The Day: Bobby Orr With PK Subban

Is that a thumbs up for meeting the legendary Bobby Orr or a thumbs up for trolling Boston Bruins fans? I say it’s probably a little bit of both. While this picture makes me want to throw up, I get why it makes sense on both sides. First, both Orr and Subban grew up in Ontario, Canada. Professional players having a hometown connection always seems to take precedence over a rivalry...

Orr jersey nixes Montreal school's 'Canadiens Jersey Day'

According to CBS Boston, an elementary school in Montreal canceled “Canadiens Jersey Day” for their students today, due to the fact that “someone complained that an 11-year-old girl was told to ditch her Bobby Orr Bruins jersey on a previous Canadiens jersey day.” With bullying awareness at an all-time high, I actually felt myself siding with the school’s administrators...

A Boston Bruins Fan Recreated Bobby Orr’s Iconic Goal On Sega NHL ’94

A.B. This amazing tribute to Bobby Orr’s Stanley Cup winning goal in 1970 was created by Dave Delisle of Dave’s Geeky Hockey: “I drew sprites for Bobby Orr, the goalie, and the player who tripped Orr. I then edited the goal crease and removed some helmets to reflect the 70′s era.” For any real hockey fan who grew up in the 90′s, EA Sports’ NHL ’94 for Sega was the...

What Franchise Has a Longer Stanley Cup Final Appearance Drought Than the Blues?

It’s been a grueling five months since Bruins fans last saw their beloved B’s in a Stanley Cup Final contest. Sorry, Blues fans. The Blues last played in the Stanley Cup Final in 1970 — coincidentally, against the Boston Bruins. In fact, the most iconic image in Bruins history is the very image that Blues fans loathe, as Bobby Orr flying through the air to celebrate his game...
