Something mentioned in the article that I wasn't aware of (or had forgotten) was that with Orr on the ice the Bruins played 4 forwards!

Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

Man this is just mind boggling. He was only 22 when he captured the title that year. 120 points in only 76 games! And was better than 16 points up on Esposito.

It says that he finished with double the historical record amount of points by a defenseman (it was him btw) DOUBLE!!! How does that happen in 1 year?

I wonder when 'roids actually did come on the scene? Was it the 1980s?
