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. 14Â through Christmas Day, NESN.com will share 12 awesome Orr plays for Bruins fans to enjoy. These arenât Orrâs greatest plays, although they are great. Theyâre 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 a goal from Orr against the rival New York Rangers. Orr received the puck at the blue line, skated into the slot and unleashed a powerful slap shot to beat the Rangers goaltender. The goal proved to be the game-winner.
Check it out in the video above.
