Today in Boston Bruins History: April 26
1977: Boston Bruins history is made when both teams score four goals very quickly. Bruins players score three and a Philadelphia Flyer adds one for four goals within 1 minute and 38 seconds during the second period. Terry O’Reilly ends up winning the game for Boston, 5-4, after 30 minutes of overtime.
1988: Cam Neely and Steve Kasper each score two goals and Boston wins 4-1 against the Montreal Canadiens in game five of their division final series. It’s the first Boston playoff series victory over Montreal since 1943.
2010: The Bruins beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 in game six of their conference quarterfinal series to clinch it.
A year ago today: The Bruins lose 2-1 to the Canadiens, though Dennis Seidenberg does score his first goal of the postseason.
