The primary reason: Orr singlehandedly changed the way the game was played. He already owned the record for most points in a season. By a defenseman of 64 set in 1968-69. With 120 points in 1969-70, he became the first ever defenseman to win an NHL scoring title and bested his own record by a whopping 88%.
Eight consecutive Norris Trophies as the NHL's best. Defenseman and three consecutive Hart Trophies as the league's most valuable player (MVP).
Orr was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1979 at age 31, the youngest to be inducted at that time. Orr went on to lead the Bruins in a march through the 1970 playoffs that culminated on May 10, 1970, when he scored one of the most famous goals in hockey history and one that gave Boston its first Stanley Cup since 1941. The goal came off a give-and-go pass with teammate Derek Sanderson at the 40-second mark of the first overtime period in the fourth game, helping to complete a sweep of the St. If it had gone by me, it's a two-on-one.
So I got a little lucky there, but Derek gave me a great pass and when I got the pass I was moving across. As I skated across, Glenn had to move across the crease and had to open his pads a little.I was really trying to get the puck on net, and I did. As I went across, Glenn's legs opened. I looked back, and I saw it go in, so I jumped. Bobby Orr Bruins Signed 20x16 Horizontal Skating Photo - Official Bobby Orr Holo and COA.
