Today in Boston Bruins History: April 20
1972: The Bruins score 10 goals in a 10-2 routing of the St. Louis Blues. This is Boston Bruins history for most goals scored in a playoff game, a feat done only one time previously in a 10-0 shutout of the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1969. In the third period of this game, more Bruins records are met when the Boston team scores five goals and St. Louis produces their only two of the night–the most goals for both teams in a single period. John Bucyk has a hat trick, too.
1983: Pete Peeters and the Bruins shut out the Buffalo Sabres 9-0 in their division final series.
A year ago today: The Bruins practice at Lake Placid’s USA Rink, the first time such an opportunity had come during the playoffs, according to the local Lake Placid News. The town relished the opportunity to host the team and to have its name in bylines all over the place too.
