“That’s the guy . . . the hockey player” said Lee, at first struggling to recall Cashman, the Bruins’ legendary winger. “I used to drink with him all the time at Daisy’s [Daisy Buchanan’s]. We were drinking . . . I think I was there the day he got popped. They took him down to the lockup — where the [Liberty] hotel is now — and they said they would give him one phone call. And he called out for Chinese food!”
Broadcast in 1990 on WCVB-TV, Boston. Outstanding footage, interviews with great figures in Bruins history. Much Bobby Orr and the Stanley Cup Bruins, Milt Schmidt, rivalry with Montreal, end of Orr’s career, Terry O’Reilly, Don Cherry, too many men on the ice, Jonathan/Wenskin/Cashman fights, Schoenfeld/Koharski “have another donut,” 1988 Finals and lights out at Boston Garden, etc. Runs 15 minutes.
Wren Blair courted the Orr family heavily but they were reluctant to have Bobby sign a 'C form' with Boston hoping Toronto would finally make an offer. The Leafs never did and Bobby signed with Boston. Keep in mind when this was happening the Leafs had become a dynasty winning 3 Cups in a row something that would not happen again until .......... like never
It's coming along, my friend. Next five years, possibly.
I think, as do many NHL lifers (Barry and Brick come to mind), this might finally be the Capitols year. Someone said they remind of the Bruins of 2011-13. Billy Jaffe noted that they're "winning the right way." They've been through all of the classic obstacles many eventual Cup winners confront & ultimately surpass. My long suffering nephew Ned, a life long Caps fan, may at last have his day.
It was the first time, and the last, that Montreal Canadiens players would hoist three members of the Boston Bruins onto their shoulders and skate them around a rink in joyful celebration.
But it was no ordinary game on Feb. 10, 1942, and the Bruins' so-called "Kraut Line" of center Milt Schmidt and wings Bobby Bauer and Woody Dumart was hardly an ordinary trio.
It was 75 years ago that Schmidt, Bauer and Dumart played their final game before heading into World War II service with the Royal Canadian Air Force, racking up 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in an 8-1 clobbering of the Canadiens at Boston Garden.
Amazing how long they let them go . The officials today would have moved in pretty quickly .
Here's another that just surfaced on YouTube featuring Gord Kluzak back in 1984. Unfortunately I don't always get the NESN feed on Center Ice, and haven't seen Kluzak in a while. So I don't know if he still occasionally does commentary in between periods.
Here's another that just got posted featuring Wayne Cashman.
