Comparable to Don Simmons, who playing with a weaker Bruins team against stronger Canadiens teams, lost the lead in only 2 of 8 loses.
From what I recall the Bruins were not losing those leads because of their goaltending.
Game 2 in 1971 and game 7 in 1979 were the two biggest losses for the Bruins against the Canadiens. Both games they had leads and lost them, but Cheevers didn't play in either.
