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...

Bobby Orr on Speed in the NHL, 'It's Dangerous'

I was reading this article over on the Sports Net site and I found something that caught my eye. According to former Boston Bruins defenseman Bobby Orr, the speed of the NHL makes it dangerous. Luke Fox, -- Orr on speed: “I played a style that coaches didn’t like. Not many players played like that. When I went to junior, I was 14 (and) owned by the Bruins. But they...

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...

This Week in Flyers' History: Week Ending April 6th

The Flyers blew a 3-goal lead and lost to the Penguins in Pittsburgh, 5-4. No, this was not an April Fools’ joke. The Flyers’ fourth goal, however, was a historic one -- both for the team and for a left-handed sniper from Lindsay, Ontario. That goal was the 50th on the season for Rick MacLeish, the first Flyer to ever score 50 goals in a season. Rick was originally drafted 4th...

NHL Mount Rushmore: Bobby Orr Headlines Hockey’s Fantastic Four

Determining four players to put on a Mount Rushmore is difficult in every sport, especially in hockey because the NHL has a rich history almost a century in length. LeBron James recently revealed his NBA Mount Rushmore, and to the surprise of many, he left off the winningest player in the history of basketball — Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell. That got the digital...

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...
