"The Canadiens got phenomenal goaltending from Dryden, and they made us work for everything we got." Phil Esposito, the Bruins record-setting scoring champion with 152 points during the regular season, called Dryden's first-period save on him, "the most unbelievable stop I've ever seen made in hockey".

The series lasted for seven games, and Dryden rescued his team after quite a few sloppy plays and from goals that should have been scored.


During his short first season in the NHL, Ken Dryden demonstrated brilliant technique as a goalie and an ability to win even in unfavorable situations - qualities acquired with experience...Ken gained a reputation for his exceptionally quick reflexes and his brilliant work with the goalie stick. He even got 23 assists during his career. But the most important statistic of all is the six Stanley Cup wins in eight seasons.

There was one time Sunday when I I made a shift on him, faked him out of position completely and fired the puck high up in the far corner. I was sure I'd scored and what happens? He brings that big leg up and stops it.`

More than any of his dazzling moves, big saves or stolen games, it was his "thinker's pose" that most people vividly remember about Ken Dryden. When the puck was cleared from his zone or when the play was whistled dead, Dryden would coolly dig the tip of his blade into the ice and fold his arms across the top. He simply relaxed until the puck came back down to his end.
