The other night I watched the Best Games DVD and the 2nd game of the '74 SCF with those guys and the rest of the Championship Bullies vs Orr, Espo, Bucyk, Hodge, Cashman, O'Reilly, Sheppard, etc. -- It seemed like Orr was out there every minute except when he took at blocked shot that shook him up -- Clarke was terrific... made Crosby seem like a slacker. Bernie was unbelievable at the end of the game and OT. It was a great evening reliving that game.
I didn't move to the Philly area until the mid-80s, so I didn't share the joy, but remember those days well.

Orr-never made a bad pass, best part of his game.
Parent-Technically perfect. Made great goaltending look easy.
Clarke-110% all the time. Never took a night off, dirty as hell.
Espo-Underrated all around player. Great stickhandler, stronger on his skates than anyone in his day.

Glorious hockey back then to be sure!
