After a huge 8-1 win in Game 3 with Cam Neely on flag duty, it was Bobby Orr who got the crowd fired up before Game 4 at TD Garden.

In one of the more emotional moments of an emotional season, Orr waved a No. 18 flag in Horton's honor, sending the Bruins Faithful into a frenzy. The team responded by netting four goals en route to an impressive victory that tied the series at two games apiece.
