Bobby Orr-“The Goal”

January 2, 2009

The staff here at Sports Poster Warehouse are indeed very excited! For one, it is now 2009! Thus, we wish you a happy and healthy new year. We are also stoked because we have just gotten one of the most sought after and memorable sports photographs ever!

It was May 10, 1970 – Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals at the Boston Garden - and, despite being dominated for the first three games of the series, the St. Louis Blues clawed their way to a 3-3 draw at the end of regulation time. As the stuffy air at the old barn thickened with anticipation, the puck dropped for the extra frame. On the first shift, the series built to a crescendo: Derek Sanderson retrieved the puck behind the net, sent it in front to the pinching defenseman, and in a split-second – SNAP – the puck is redirected past Glen Hall, Bobby Orr dives headlong in joy across the crease, the fans go crazy, and the rest is history! In classic black-and-white, this legendary photographic image has it all: Orr’s ecstacy; Hall’s defeated stumble; the Garden’s now-lost majesty; the fans’ instant reaction; all culminating in the moment that the Bruins finally won the Cup again for the first time in 29 years.
