Bobby Orr, the Boston Bruins and the 1970 Stanley Cup Playoffs

The National Hockey League is the hockey league that attracts the best talent in the world. In 1970 there were just 12 teams in the NHL, but the league had plenty of solid competition. Each one of these teams was looking for a chance to play in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

 

The league was split up into two different divisions. The East Division and West Division featured teams that were split up geographically. The East Division playoffs featured the Chicago Black Hawks, the Boston Bruins, the Detroit Red Wings and the New York Rangers. The West Division playoff contenders were the St. Louis Blues, Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins and Oakland Seals.

 

The top two teams in the East Division were the Chicago Black Hawks and the Boston Bruins. These teams definitely looked like the top teams in the division in the first round. Chicago took on Detroit and looked extremely impressive. The Red Wings were a solid team in the regular season, but it was clear that they had no chance in this series. The Black Hawks put on a clinic in this series and came out on top game after game. Going into the 4th game the Black Hawks had already taken a 3-0 lead in the series. The Black Hawks showed no mercy and came out on top against the Detroit Red Wings, sweeping the series.

 

The Boston Bruins were not quite as dominant, but they looked good against the New York Rangers. The Rangers gave the Bruins a scare, taking two games in the series. The Bruins held strong and went into game 6 with a 3-2 series lead. The Bruins did what they needed to and would not allow the Rangers to send this won to 7 games. The series finished at 4-2 in favor of the Bruins.

 

The St. Louis Blues were the top seeded team in the West Division and took on the Minnesota North Stars. This series was similar to the series between the Bruins and the Rangers as the series was pushed to 6 games. Like the Bruins, the Blue were able to come out on top against the North Stars in the 6th game.

 

The Pittsburgh Penguins were the 2nd best team in the West and took on the Oakland Seals. The Oakland Seals were simply no match for this team and could not even win a game in the series. The Penguins came out on top with a series sweep in 4 games.

 

The Black Hawks looked excellent in round one and many people expected them to carry their momentum into the next round. Unfortunately Bruins were read for everything that Chicago had to offer. Boston thoroughly dominated the Black Hawks and swept the series in four games to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

 

The St. Louis Blues and the Penguins had a much more competitive series, but it was clear that the Blues were the better team. They were able to slow down the momentum of the Penguins and took out Pittsburgh in 6 games to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

 

The Bruins were just too impressive in the finals and managed to take out the Blues in a 4 game sweep to become Stanley Cup Champions. The Stanley Cup-clinching goal was scored by Bruins' legend Bobby Orr. Orr took a pass from behind the net, scored and then sailed over a Blues defenseman in what is now an iconic image.
