On This Day: Photographer captures soaring Stanley Cup champion Bobby Orr in iconic image

On May 10, 1970, 40 seconds into overtime of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final, Boston Bruins star Bobby Orr slips the winning goal past St. Louis Blues goaltender Glenn Hall. After scoring, Orr leaps into the air before landing flat and sliding into his teammates’ embrace. The famous celebration is immortalized by Boston Record-American photographer Ray Lussier, whose image of the soaring Orr is one of the most famous sports photographs of all time.

In Boston sports lore, Orr’s game-winner, which made the Bruins NHL champions, is known as “The Goal.”
