BOBBY ORR RUMORS & GOSSIP

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 98

With 98 days until the final regular season home game at the Nassau Coliseum, today we’ll take a look back at Denis Potvin‘s 1975-76 season where, in just his third season with the Islanders, he recorded at the time a career high 98 points. The Islanders were coming off a 1975 season in which they shocked the NHL, defeating New York Rangers 2-1 in the preliminary round and rallying...

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’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...

P.K. Subban Celebrates Return To TD Garden By Hanging With Bobby Orr (Photo)

P.K. Subban and the Montreal Canadiens return to TD Garden on Saturday for the first time since eliminating the B’s in the Stanley Cup playoffs last season.

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, Sportsnet.ca -- 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...
