This Date In Stanley Cup History
May 10, 1970 • Bobby Orr, who had distinguished himself in 1969-70 as the first defenseman in NHL history to record 100 points (33-87-120) in a season, scored just 40 seconds into overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 4-3 win and a four-game sweep versus the St. Louis Blues in the 1970 Final. For Orr, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner, the goal was his first of the series.
May 10, 1973 • In Montreal’s 6-4 series-ending victory in Game Six, Yvan Cournoyer (6-6-12) and Jacques Lemaire (5-7-12) tallied 1-2-3 and 0-2-2 scoring totals, respectively, to tie Gordie Howe’s record of 12 points in one Final series. Meanwhile, Montreal’s Henri Richard tied Red Kelly’s all-time record for Stanley Cup games with the 65th of his career.
