Although the 69-70 Bruins were the first team to bring the Stanley Cup to Boston in years, the 71-72 team was the team that I remember the best. The Bruins went 54-13-11, and beat the New York Rangers in 6 games to win the cup.
Phil Esposito won the scoring title with 66 goals and 67 assists. For the 2nd year in a row he scored his 50th goal on his birthday, February 20th.
Bobby Orr won his 3rd consecutive Hart Trophy, his 5th Norris Trophy and won the Conn Smythe Trophy for the 2nd time.
Goaltender Eddie Johnston had 4 assists, setting a record for assists by a goaltender.
And of course there was the Stanley Cup, the Bruins 5th. They defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 4 games to 1 in the Quarter Finals. They defeated the St. Louis Blues 4 games to 0 in the Semi Finals. And they defeated the New York Rangers 4 games to 2 in the Cup Finals.
