NESN.com wanted to give Boston Bruins fans the ultimate holiday gift, so we pored over our archives, where we stumbled upon hours of Bobby Orr highlights. We watched them all, just for you. Tough job, right?
Starting Monday, Dec. 14 through Christmas Day, NESN.com will share 12 awesome Orr plays for Bruins fans to enjoy. These aren’t necessarily Orr’s greatest plays, but they’re the ones that caught our eye as we watched Orr sail through and around opponents, slap and snipe shots past helpless goalies, set up teammates with on-the-tape passes and deny foes the chance to beat the Big, Bad Bruins.
Next up we have the Hall of Famer scoring the longest goal of his storied NHL career: an empty-netter from his own goal line.
Check it out in the video above and be sure to check back tomorrow for another great Orr moment.
