Celebrating 85 years of NHL hockey history in Boston! This amazing DVD set starts at the veryr origins of the legendary Bruins franchise, and takes you on a trip through time, from the origins in 1924, through the decades at the old Boston Garden, all the way to 2008 and the stars of the resurgent Fleet Center favorites. Produced by NHL Studios, the 90-minute documentary delves deep into the archives to bring you footage and stories of such legends as Art Ross, Eddie Shore, Frank Brimsek, "The Kraut Line" (Milt Schmidt, Woody Dumart, Bobby Bauer), Fern Flaman, Leo Labine, John Bucyk, Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Derek Sanderson, Ken Hodge, Wayne Cashman, coach Harry Sinden, Gerry Cheevers, Brad Park, Terry O'Reilly, Rick Middleton, coach Don Cherry, Ray Bourque, Cam Neely, and new-school favorites like Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas, Marc Savard, and more. With film, pictures, sound, and interviews you won't find anywhere else, this DVD tells the story of the Bruins like you've never seen it before! (Interviews include historian Richard Johnson, broadcaster Fred Cusick, journalists Stan Fischler and Bob Ryan, coaches Sinden and Cherry, and players Flaman, Esposito, Bucyk, Willie O'Ree, Orr, Gary Doak, Cheevers, Sanderson, Hodge, Mike Milbury, Neely, Bourque, and others).
Adding to the magic is nearly three hours of bonus footage, including player features (Chara, Thomas, Savard, Andrew Ference, and more), and, best of all, the original television coverage of seven legendary ceremonies at the Garden (Bobby Orr night, January 9, 1979; John Bucyk night, March 13, 1980; Phil Esposito Night, December 3, 1987; Closing Night at the Boston Garden, September 25, 1995; Ray Bourque Night, October 4, 2001; Terry O'Reilly Night, October 24, 2002; and Cam Neely Night, January 12, 2004).
