    Trivia: name the Blue’s D-man that tripped Orr as he scored the goal.

  2. Thor says:

    As much as I’d like to say I was tripped, I have to admit, I flat out fell.

    I’m going with Plager.

  4. atrain says:

    Sorry, forgot to mention….the D-man was not one of the Plager brothers.

  5. atrain says:

    The D-man’s name was Noel Picard, also a #4.
    Get this: #4 (Orr) scored the fourth goal in the fourth period of the fourth game to make the score 4-3, for the four-game sweep. It was Boston’s fourth Stanley Cup.

    Our 4th periods are better

  8. Dr. Bumba says:

    I must agree with Scrooge McDuck.

  9. RRX says:

    Another odd thing, Colin Baker wears #44 and has almost twice as many letters than Bob Orr in his name, who was #4. Crazy stuff!!!
    Or should it be #8 ?

    Also, I think Colin had 44 penalty minutes in the first 4 games of the wintersport season.
