- Comment on 50th anniversary for trailblazing O'Ree
The Bruins were also hurting that night. Defensive stalwart Bob Armstrong, firebrand Leo Labine & offensive power Real Chevrefils were missing from action..Buddy Boone had also been called up..Coach Schmidt had moved Fleming Mackell from his regular line...Enter Willie O'Ree.. Veteran netminder Harry Lumley had just replaced the injured Don Simmons & was posting a stellar shutout...The Bruins of the late 1950s were a powerhouse & the intense rivalry with Les Canadiens was a constant, ongoing affair of epic proportions...Witness that night's score.."Plus ca change"...Cheers!!
