Another one of the No. 1 seeds in the Boston’s Biggest Sports Legend tournament has been immortalized with a statue in his honor.
Bobby Orr, who is responsible for perhaps the most famous image in Bruins history, was present for the unveiling of a statue commemorating his series-clinching goal in the Stanley Cup finals on May 10, 1970. The statue stands right outside the TD Garden and was officially introduced on the 40th anniversary of the moment.
Orr addressed the crowd on Causeway Street on Monday.
“The specific moment in time … is now something we can all remember together each time we enter the Garden,” Orr told the crowd.
After the ceremony, NESN’s Jade McCarthy caught up with the legend, who was speechless.
“I’m honored,” Orr said. “I don’t know what else to say.”
