Boston Bruins - 1972 Stanley Cup Champs I posted this on the CBC News website in Canada following the Boston Bruins' Stanley Cup championship on June 15, 2011. It got such a wonderful response that I thought I'd share it here too: It had been 14,279 days since captain Johnny Bucyk hoisted the Boston Bruins' last Stanley Cup on May 11, 1972. To put things in perspective... Richard Nixon was in the White House. America still had combat troops in Vietnam. If you bought a quarter's worth of candy, you could get sick eating it all. Pitchers still batted in the American League. There was no such thing as rap music or punk rock. Nobody considered the possibility of terrorist attacks at the Olympics. The NHL had 14 teams. Few players wore helmets. Some goalies didn't wear masks. Nobody seriously thought hockey players from the USSR were good. There were hardly any McDonald's Restaurants in Canada. There were very few Tim Hortons either. Archie Bunker was in his heyday. Television sets had rabbit ears. Nobody thought the world was in peril from global warming or climate change or whatever they're calling it this week. Lotteries were illegal in Canada. Arthur Godfrey Time had still been on the radio two weeks earlier. Calculators could perform four functions and cost $179. Most people had rotary telephones. Forget about DVD players--VCRs didn't exist. The idea of bottled water would have been laughable. Computers were enormous things that occupied entire rooms and did simple calculations using punch cards. Hardware meant hammers and wrenches. Software didn't mean anything. People still sent telegrams. Life Magazine was still around. Canada still had the death penalty. O.J. Simpson was a hero. The Lord's Prayer was recited in public schools. Nobody thought it was wrong. A new car cost $2500. Hockey cards were a dime a pack--and they came with pink bubble gum covered in powdered sugar. Bobby Orr was the greatest player in the NHL. (Thirty-nine years later he's still the greatest of all time.).

The Ropers - Disastrous Spinoff Three's Company was a big it for ABC when it debuted in March 1977. Risque for its time due to its frequent sexual innuendos, the show was about a single male who was permitted to share an apartment with two single females as long as he pretended to be gay to placate the landlords. By the 1977-78 season, it was the #3 show on American TV. Accordingly, someone at ABC thought a sitcom centered on the show's landlords--the Ropers--was bound to be a hit. Audra Lindley, who played Helen Roper, liked the idea. Norman Fell, who played uptight Stanley Roper, wasn't so sure. He was quite content being a secondary character on a hit show and thought a spinoff was a big career risk. Nevertheless The Ropers premiered on Tuesday, March 13, 1979 to a very high initial rating, and it did moderately well in the ratings for the rest of the TV season. Then, in the fall of 1979, The Ropers was moved from its Tuesday time slot to Saturday where it competed head-to-head against NBC's popular CHIPS. The show's viewers failed to make the transition. Moreover, the Ropers never attracted the targetted young demographic. After 28 episodes The Ropers was yanked. By that time, Lindley and Fell had their roles as landlords on Three's Company decisively replaced by the popular Don Knotts. They made one cameo appearance and vanished from the show. Norman Fell's fears had come true. The Ropers regularly appears on TV fans' and critics' lists of the worst spinoffs ever.

Bob Baun - Broken Leg Goal A sports classic: It's April 23, 1964; Game #6 of the 1964 Stanley Cup finals. The Detroit Red Wings lead the Toronto Maple Leafs three games to two and are looking to clinch the Cup at the Detroit Olympia. During the third period, Toronto defenceman Bobby Baun crumples to the ice and has to be taken to the Leafs' dressing room on a stretcher. He's done for the night, right? Nope! Believing he only has a pinched nerve in his leg, Baun returns in time for the overtime period--and scores the winning goal! A post-game medical examination reveals that Baun had broken his leg. (Two nights later, Baun plays in the deciding seventh game too and leads Toronto to a 4-0 win and the Stanley Cup.)

1939 Rangers-Leafs NHL Game This is a quaint National Film Board of Canada featurette on hockey titled Hot Ice. Most of it focuses on a New York Rangers-Toronto Maple Leafs game at Maple Leaf Gardens played on November 11, 1939. It features an interesting look at old-time hockey. Notice there is no center red line in 1939 and both teams share the same penalty box. Five months later the same two teams would meet in the 1940 Stanley Cup finals, with the Rangers prevailing in six games.

2011 Stanley Cup Riot Commentary One of the most embarrassing episodes in Canadian history: On June 15, 2011, the Boston Bruins soundly defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 to win the Stanley Cup in the seventh game of the finals in Vancouver. Disappointed Canucks fans and mindless hooligans (those two terms may be interchangeable) did not accept the defeat well. They laid waste to Vancouver's downtown--much as they did in 1994 when the Canucks lost in the finals to the New York Rangers! The following night on CBC's National News, commentator Rex Murphy bluntly expressed his disgust with the rioters.

Philadelphia Flyers Win 1975 Cup The Philadelphia Flyers won their second consecutive Stanley Cup on May 27, 1975 with a 2-0 victory of the Buffalo Sabres. The win gave the Flyers a six-game victory in the finals. Here are the two goals in the third period that clinched the game for the visitors. As noted at the end of this clip, the Flyers had an all-Canadian roster--the last time such a team won the Stanley Cup. Danny Gallivan and Dick Irvin of Hockey Night in Canada call the game.

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.
