40 years ago today one of the worst nights in Bruins history occurred in Montréal. Depending on a fan's age that night was just as crushing as 17 seconds would be in 2013. To the younger generation of Boston sports fans, it felt exactly like Game 7 of the ALCS in 2003 when the Red Sox had a stranglehold over the Yankees and it slipped away in as cruel a way as possible. Three Little Words: Too Many Men To this day I have no idea how we survived the drive back through the mountains after that game. All I remember is we staggered into the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester around 6 AM and the waitress looked at us and remarked 'You guys look like you had a hard night. I held up a Montreal newspaper and she gasped 'YOU WERE THERE???" - I'm buying your breakfast. But exactly 9 years earlier on May 10, 1970, we experienced the best of times.
