On this day all the way back 50 years ago the Boston Bruins defeated the St. Louis Blues 4-3 winning the Stanley Cup, with a 4-0 series win. Game 4 ended with some dramatics as hall of famer Bobby Orr slotted in the winning goal for the Bruins creating the famous “The Flight” shot of him flying in the air after he was tripped by Blues defenseman Noel Picard after scoring the winning goal.
This became the Bruins 4th Stanley Cup victory in their history and their first one in 29 years. On the 40th Anniversary of the goal back on May 10th, 2010. The Boston Bruins unveiled a statue of “The Flight” right outside of TD Garden in Boston, so the moment could be remembered forever.
