Public Art: The Goal statue

Sculptor : © Harry Weber

Description: A 800lb bronze statue of Boston Bruins No 4, Boby Orr, flying through the air with arms outstretched after scoring the historical goal in overtime which gave the Boston Bruins a 4-3 lead over the St Louis Blues to claim the Stanley Cup in 1970. To those unfamiliar with the Boston bruins, they are a national ice hockey team.

Date Unveiled: The much beloved Bobby Orr was present to cut the black and gold ribbon to reveal the statue on May the 10th, 2010, 40 years to the day the puck went into the back of the net. Also in attendance were Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and many of Orr's former teammates and coaches. David Ortiz and Tim Wakefield from the Red Soxs also turned up for the celebrations.

Location: Outside the TD Gardens along the West Walkway entrance facing Causeway Street, Boston , Massachusetts.
