Today in Boston Bruins History: March 27
[Due to human error, the history posts for March 27 and 28 were mixed up! This is the proper version of March 27's historical events. I apologize for the mistake.]
1949: The Bruins win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 5-4 overtime victory as part of the 1949 semifinals.
1984: Barry Pederson has four goals and an assist as large part of a 6-4 win against the Quebec Nordiques. This effort ties a club record. Rick Middleton also has four points (one goal, three assists) and reaches 100 points for the second time in his career.
1997: Ray Bourque records 1,000 assists. He becomes just the fifth player in NHL history to do so and the first to do it all with one team.
1998: More good things from Ray Bourque–he scores his 385th goal, which ties him with Paul Coffey for goals scored by a defenseman.
2004: The Bruins set an NHL record for overtime games in a single season when they play the 29th such game, a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens. They’d have another OT game before season’s end.
A year ago today: In the last regular-season meeting with the Philadelphia Flyers, the Bruins win 2-1. (It won’t be their last meeting of 2010-11, though…) Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand score the two goals to get the Bruins the two points.
