*Orr missed 28 games this season, but I was only able to identify 27 of them
These are the games I have Orr as missing that season:

Nov.1 (1 game)
Dec. 10 to Dec. 23 (6 games)
Jan. 18 to Jan. 24 (4 games)
Feb. 11 to Mar. 21 (17 games)

I know the timeline on the Orr site says he missed the Jan 25 game vs Montreal, but I think that may be an error.

I did not have information as to any games where both Esposito and Orr did not play. Esposito barely missed any games, so if this occurred it did not happen a lot. The most likely case would be the 2 games in 1971-72. Orr sat out the last two games of the season. I have not found out if Esposito sat those out as well, but I did find evidence that he was playing through a knee injury, and we know that the Bruins had 1st place locked up at that point, so the motive is there.
Yes, Esposito did miss those two games. Also, in the game prior to those two (a 4-1 loss to Toronto on Mar.29/72, with Espo getting the goal), the summary mentions that Orr only played one shift.
