Bruins-Flyers Rivalry The 1970s provided excellent hockey for NHL fans. One of the best rivalries was the Boston Bruins versus the Philadelphia Flyers. The two teams met in the playoffs four times in five seasons. In 1974, the upstart Flyers surprised the favored Bruins in six games to win the Stanley Cup. Two years later, in 1976, Philadelphia beat the Bruins in five games in a semifinal series. A year later Boston avenged the earlier defeats with a four-game sweep in the semis. (The victory was so decisive it got Boston's Brad Park and Gerry Cheevers on the cover of Sports Illustrated on May 9, 1977.) The following year, 1978, Boston again convincingly beat Philadelphia in five games in a semifinal. The 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs featured these two teams meeting in the postseason, a conference semifinal, for the first time since 1978. The Flyers won in seven games after losing the first three.

Boston Bruins Amazing Comeback On May 13, 2013, one of the most stunning and improbable comebacks in sports history occurred. With under 11 minutes left in regulation time, the Boston Bruins rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the seventh game of their opening round NHL playoff series versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. Boston had only scored three goals in the previous eight periods of the series before rallying. It was wild euphoria for Boston's fans--but utter disbelief for Toronto's fans. This condensed highlight clip shows the Leafs taking a 4-1 lead in the third period, the three Boston goals that tied the game, and the overtime winner by Patrice Bergeron.

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.

1985 NBA Draft Lottery Conspiracy Many NBA fans steadfastly claim that the league's first draft lottery, held in 1985, was rigged. Prior to 1985, the two teams that finished in last place in the NBA's two conferences used a coin toss to determine which of the bottom-feeders would pick first overall in the collegiate draft that summer. This practice led to the accusation that some teams that had little hope of being competitive were deliberately tanking games to get in on the coin toss. To make tanking a less attractive proposition, the NBA instituted a 'draft lottery' in 1985 in which the seven teams that did not qualify for the playoffs had an equal chance of getting the first overall pick. In 1985 that selection would obviously be used to choose Patrick Ewing of Georgetown University who had led the Hoyas to three berths in the NCAA final in four years. Even before the draft was held there was scuttlebutt that the NBA would rig the draw so that the New York Knicks, the team with the biggest TV market, would get the #1 pick. The lottery was held at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. CBS televised the lottery between halves of a playoff game. As this clip shows, it was a very simplistic lottery. Seven sealed envelopes, each containing a team's logo, were put into a transparent sphere drum. The drum was spun. Commissioner David Stern selected the seven envelopes one at a time for the one to seven draft slots in that order. Almost immediately conspiracy theorists argued the draw had been rigged in favor of the Knicks. The fourth envelope tossed into the drum contained the Knicks' logo. It ended up with a bent corner because it was tossed into the drum more strongly than the other envelopes. Some cynics even claim the Knicks' envelope was frozen so Commissioner Stern would select the coldest envelope first! Others point out that the law firm responsible for overseeing the fairness of the lottery had a financial interest in the Knicks. Interestingly, the team that ended up with the seventh pick, Golden State, had the worst record in the NBA in 1984-85. In previous years they would have gotten no worse than the second pick. David Stern has always scoffed at the idea that the 1985 lottery was rigged. Watch for yourself and decide if anything was amiss.
