The moment was immortalized precisely 43 years ago today.
Flashback to May 10, 1970, Boston Garden: The Boston Bruins are leading the St. Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup final three games to nothing and looking for the sweep. The game is knotted at three and the teams are heading into overtime.
A mere 40 seconds into the extra frame, defenceman Bobby Orr works a give-and-go with forward Derek Sanderson and takes the puck to the net.
Orr beats Blues goaltender Glenn Hall just as he’s getting tripped by defenceman Noel Picard. Airborne and victorious, the greatest defenceman to play the game flings his arms to the heavens in celebration of his first Stanley Cup victory — and the home-team Bruins’ first in 29 years.
