NESN.com wanted to give Boston Bruins fans the ultimate holiday gift, so we pored through 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 Orr?s greatest plays, although they are great. 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 is footage from when Orr was presented with the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman in the 1969-70 season, as well as the Art Ross Trophy for leading the league in scoring. Orr became the first and only player to ever win the Hart, Norris, Art Ross, Conn Smythe and Stanley Cup in the same season.
Check it out in the video above and be sure to check back tomorrow for another great Orr moment.
