Today in Boston Bruins History: May 10
1970: The Boston Bruins raise the Stanley Cup for the fourth time after a 4-3 win over the St. Louis Blues. Bobby Orr‘s famous game-winning goal, a beloved piece of Boston Bruins history immortalized in a statue outside TD Garden, is scored at just 40 seconds into the overtime period. This victory is also the tenth straight playoff win for the Bruins, an NHL record at the time. Phil Esposito finishes the postseason with some records of his own: 13 playoff goals and 27 points. Orr sets a record too for points by a defenseman by tallying 20, putting up at least one point in every playoff game. He wins the Conn Smythe Trophy.
1977: The Bruins are shut out 3-0 by the Montreal Canadiens in Game 2 of their final series.
1979: The Canadiens beat the Bruins in overtime, 5-4, of Game 7 of the their semifinal series. This ends the Bruins’ 1979 playoff run.
1988: The Bruins beat the New Jersey Devils 7-1 in Game 5 of the conference finals. Tempers get a little heated after the game with Devils coach Jim Schoenfeld getting into a shouting match with referee Don Koharski in the hallway. Schoenfeld is suspended for Game 6 but his suspension is appealed.
2010: Two Philadelphia Flyers goalies, Brian Boucher and Michael Leighton, share duty during a 4-0 shutout of the Bruins. This is the second shared shutout of the Bruins in team history.
