We missed the actual anniversary by a day, but the event was important enough to note – even if late.
It was on October 19, 1966 that Bobby Orr played his first NHL game.
The game was played at the Boston Garden and the opponents were the Detroit Red Wings.
To many, this writer include, Bobby Orr was the best they ever saw.
And, for us it all started at the game 50 years ago.
