Flying Goal (Orr 1970)

It is one of hockey’s most iconic images, adorning many a home and storefront in New England and around the hockey world. The home team would make quick work of their opponents from St. Louis, winning their 4th Stanley Cup in four games, but this final game would extend to overtime. 40 seconds into the extra period the Hall of Famer and greatest defenseman goal scorer of all-time received back to his stick the give-and-go pass from his teammate, and scored the winning goal. While doing so he was tripped and sent flying in mid-air in front of the goal. As he flew, he celebrated the team’s victory, arms outstretched - wings of victory. playmaker: Paul D.
