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.

1972 Stanley Cup Finals - Game 6 Highlights For years it was believed only a few highlights of the 1972 Stanley Cup finals between the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers still existed. (Before 1980, TV networks often erased sports programming in order to reuse the expensive videotapes for other events. After all, the conventional wisdom was that nobody would be interested in seeing old sports events! For example, there is no surviving full videotape of Super Bowl I.) Someone at Madison Square Garden discovered the New York Rangers had filmed the sixth game of the Cup finals for their own purposes. In 2008 MSG network combined an audio tape of Dan Kelly's CBS broadcast (preserved by a Bruins fan) and dubbed it over the silent film the Rangers had made. The happy result is this 12-minute condensed version of the game in which the Bruins defeated the Rangers 3-0 to win their fifth Stanley Cup. Look for the brilliance of Boston's Bobby Orr to be the deciding factor. Note: You may have to crank up the sound to adequately hear the legendary voice of Dan Kelly do the play-by-play.

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!)

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.

Roger Doucet Sings Anthems Many sports fans show bias when they declare the national anthem singer for their particular team is the best. My pick for the best ever was the late Roger Doucet who splendidly performed both the American and Canadian national anthems at the Montreal Forum for many years until his death at the young age of 62 in 1981. I despise the Montreal Canadiens, but I have to admit Doucet, who was trained as an opera singer, was a notch above all the others I've ever heard. Here he is at his glorious best at a 1979 Stanley Cup playoff game.

Montreal Maroons 1924-1938 For 14 seasons from 1924-25 through 1937-38 there were two National Hockey League teams located in Montreal. Clad in the color for which they were named, the Montreal Maroons were created, supposedly, as the city's anglophone team while the older, established Canadiens represented Montreal's French-speaking populace. The famous Montreal Forum was actually built as the Maroons' home arena--not the Canadiens'. The Maroons lost their first game 2-1 to another expansion team, the Boston Bruins, on December 1, 1924, The very next season, however, the Maroons won the Stanley Cup, defeating the Victoria Cougars three games to one in a best-of-five final. (That was the last year in which non-NHL team were permitted to compete for pro hockey's holy grail.) Despite usually being a competitive team for most of their short existence--they also won the Stanley Cup in 1934-35--the Maroons clearly were the city's second choice in popularity. The Great Depression also hurt the team at the gate. The Maroons finished dead last in NHL attendance three years in a row during the 1930s. After an uncharacteristic last-place finish in 1937-38, the Montreal Maroons ceased operations. Their final game, fittingly, was a 6-3 loss to their intra-city rivals the Montreal Canadiens on March 17, 1938. Eleven Maroon players are enshrined in the Hockey Hall of fame as well as five Maroon coaches. Overall, the Maroons finished with an all-time regular-season record of 271 wins, 260 losses and 91 ties. The team's all-time leading scorer, Nels Stewart, held the NHL record for career goals (324) until 1952. He scored 185 of them as a member of the Maroons.

Incomplete 1919 Stanley Cup Final The NHL has not always had sole possession of the Stanley Cup as its championship trophy. It was originally donated by Lord Stanley of Preston, Canada's fifth governor-general, to be awarded to the championship amateur hockey team of Canada. By 1910, the rules were liberalized and professional teams were competing for it. Beginning in the 1910s, the professional champions of the west annually met the champions of the eastern-based National Hockey Association (and later the National Hockey League) for the Cup with the venue alternating between east and west each year. In 1919, the Seattle Metropolitan were pitted against the Montreal Canadiens in a best-of-five contest in Seattle. After five games, the series was tied with each team having won twice and one game ending in a tie. A sixth game was necessary to decide the Cup winner, but by the end of the fifth game, both teams were feeling the effects of illness as the Spanish Influenza pandemic hit Seattle. The Canadiens were especially hard hit by the flu bug. Several players were hospitalized. One, defenseman Joe Hall, died. The series was abandoned and never resumed. Thus there was no Stanley Cup winner in 1919.
