1978 Stanley Cup Final - Game 4 OT Today's NHL is faster, more diverse, and probably more skilled, but some hockey fans argue that the passion of the 1970s NHL has not been surpassed. Here is the overtime period of Game #4 of the 1978 Stanley Cup finals at Boston Garden between the hometown Bruins and their longtime rivals the Montreal Canadiens. The excitement in the building is palpable! Dan Kelly--perhaps hockey's greatest announcer--calls the action.

1970 Stanley Cup Semifinal - Bruins vs Hawks Before 2013, the most important NHL playoff series ever contested between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins was the 1970 Eastern Division final. Many people considered it to be the "real Stanley Cup final" because the Eastern teams were comprised of the stronger Original Six clubs while the Western Divison was comprised of the expansion teams from 1967. Chicago and Boston had both finished the 1969-70 season with 99 points. Chicago was credited with the top spot on the basis of most wins. Chicago was the slight favorite to win the series--but Boston won the series in surprising four-game sweep. (They would also sweep the overmatched St. Louis Blues in the Cup final.) Here are some highlights of the first three games from the Bruins-Blackhawks series.

Canadian Tire Albert Commercial - 1984 Canadian Tire is a huge chain of stores in Canada that sells automotive products, household items, sports equipment, gardening supplies...you name it. This 1984 commercial became very well known. The message is simple: Buy your hockey equipment at Canadian Tire and you'll rise from the last kid chosen at a pickup game to a superstar. (Funny note: For a while it was not uncommon for NHL fans at games in Canadian cities to chant "Albert! Albert!" when the home team was playing poorly.)

National Anthem in Boston - Apr. 17/13 Very powerful: Two days after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the Boston Bruins hosted the Buffalo Sabres in an NHL game. Rene Rancourt, the Bruins' longtime anthem singer, allowed the fans to carry the tune.

Ray Bourque Gives Jersey to Espo It was one of the classiest incidents in sports history. Here's the background: Phil Esposito had set numerous league and team scoring records during his tenure with the NHL's Boston Bruins from 1967 to 1975. Espo was traded to the New York Rangers in November 1975. In 1979 rookie sensation Ray Bourque was given the #7 jersey by the Bruins. He wore it reluctantly knowing that Phil Esposito was so closely associated with it. On December 3, 1987, the Bruins retired Esposito's #7 jersey but counted on Bourque to continue to wear it. Bourque, however, had other ideas. He figured the retirement ceremony was an ideal time to return #7 wholly to Espo. Only a handful of people knew what Bourque was going to do. In a surprising and touching gesture, Bourque removed his #7 jersey to reveal his new #77 jersey that he wore for the rest of his days in Boston. Esposito was clearly moved by Bourque's selfless gesture.

Bobby Hull scores in 1963 NHL ASG They may sound unbelievable, but a long time ago NHL players took pride in the the league's annual All-Star Game. They actually played defense and cared about the outcome of the game. Here's a clip of Bobby Hull scoring in the 1963 game. At that time the ASG featured the defending Stanley Cup champions versus a team of all-stars from the other NHL clubs. This game ended in a 3-3 tie between the All-Stars and Toronto Maple Leafs. (Yeah, the Toronto Maple Leafs were once the defending Stanley Cup champions. Imagine that!)

Boston Bruins vs NY Rangers Fans - 1979 The NHL in the 1970s could often be wild. This was epitomized as the decade neared its end on Sunday, December 23, 1979. On that date the visiting Boston Bruins angrily invaded the stands at Madison Square Garden to administer frontier-style justice on a few New York Rangers fans who had taken some liberties. (It's hard to see the exact cause of the fracas in this video, but this is what happened: A fan, 30-year-old John Kaptain, reached over the glass and belted Boston's Stan Jonathan across the face with a rolled-up program and drew blood. Kaptain then grabbed Jonathan's stick. After that...mayhem ensued!) Among the most enraged Bruins was the normally peaceable Peter McNab. Feisty Terry O'Reilly, not surprisingly, was the most zealous participant. The enduring image, however, is Mike Milbury ripping a shoe from Kaptain's foot and beating him with it! Milbury eventually threw Kaptain's shoe onto the ice. O'Reilly and Milbury would both later coach the Bruins. Kaptain, who attended the game with his brother James and his father Manny, had to make his way home from Madison Square Garden minus one shoe. Some 300 Ranger fans attacked the Bruins' bus outside the arena. Because of this crazy incident, the NHL mandated the height of the protective glass surrounding all teams' ice surfaces be dramatically increased. John Kaptain died in 1999.

John DAmico Tribute NHL linesman John D'Amico spent the better part of 24 years officiating in nearly 1,700 games. He started his career as a referee in 1964 but quickly found being a linesman was more to his liking. This feature focuses on D'Amico's final game, a Jets-Maple Leafs game in 1988. (The narrator is a familiar voice to Canadian hockey fans: Brian McFarlane.) D'Amico died of leukemia in 2005.

1967 Stanley Cup Finals - Game 3 OT The year 1967 was Canada's centennial, so it was somewhat fitting that the two Canadian NHL teams would meet in that year's Stanley Cup final. The 1966-67 NHL season was also the last year of the old six-team league; the following season the league would double in size to 12 clubs. Here are some highlights from the two overtime periods from Game #3 at Maple Leaf Gardens. It seems from another world: NHL players with no helmets, two barefaced goalies, no advertising on the boards or on the ice, and end-to-end excitement in a critical game! Bill Hewitt and Brian McFarlane call the action. The Toronto Maple Leafs would beat the Montreal Canadiens in six games to win the Stanley Cup. Toronto has not even been in the Cup finals in all the years since 1967.
