From doc5hole:


‘The Tradition’ to honor ‘Cash,’ an old-school money player

http://blogs.southcoasttoday.com/bru...-money-player/





Watch out tonight, Cash, because Espo is introducing you.

Big Phil, based in Florida and still connected to his brainchild, the Tampa Bay Lightning, via broadcast work, doesn’t visit Boston for Bruins functions. He never fully recovered from the Nov. 7, 1975 trade to New York. When the Bruins and the Blackhawks were set to play for the Cup in 2013, Esposito, whose career began in Chicago, was asked to comment on the series and offered a “What do I care? They both got rid of me – screw ‘em,” type response. But he’s here tonight at TD Garden in an act of loyalty that echoes the words of late Flyers coach Fred Shero: “Win today, and we walk together forever.”

In Rink Rap’s view, the more significant piece of Cashman’s career was those later ’70s and the second transition to the young club that finished first overall and gave the Islanders their longest series as a Stanley Cup dynasty, taking them to six in the ’83 conference final.

“Our identity went from a swashbuckling bunch of guys to a team where, basically, hard work. That’s how we had to win, we had to outwork people,” said Cashman.

Bill 'Spaceman' Lee on Cashman

https://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/r...WVO/story.html

Quote:
“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.

Extensive look at Bruins fans, their loyalty and what makes them tick. Interviews and footage include Roger Naples and the “Gallery Gods” of Boston Garden. Runs 5:22.

This video just reminded me how much I miss the Garden.

I stumbled across some beautiful color film shot in Montreal during the 1966-1967 season.

The Bruins road sweater that year stands out.

Don Cherry sits down with Jean Ratelle, Brad Park and Phil Esposito to discuss trades, fighting and the 1972 Summit Series.

Amazing how long they let them go . The officials today would have moved in pretty quickly .

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.

Appears it was released in Canada with the title Faceoff

My, that is truly awful.

BTW, the coach is none other than John Vernon, the fellow who played Dean Wormer in "Animal House" four years later.

'Kraut Line' of Bruins honored before going to war

Quote:
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.
