The Bruins first wore a gold jersey back in the early 1940's for four seasons. They reintroduced a gold jersey for the 1955-56 season while also redesigning their black sweaters, making them the first team in NHL history with a third jersey. This arrangement lasted two seasons until the black jerseys were discontinued.
The gold sweaters were tweaked twice until a redesign for 1959-60 arrived at today's featured jersey style, which had much thinner striping that it's predecessors. This style would be worn through the 1966-67 season, lasting just long enough to be worn by rookie Bobby Orr during his rookie year.
Of note, the Bruins also brought back a black jersey in 1959-60, once again giving them three styles from 1958-59 through 1964-65. Once today's featured jersey was dropped for 1967-68, the Bruins would not wear another gold jersey until the modern era of the alternate jersey arrived in 1995-96.
Today's video selection is Connelly, while with the North Stars, shattering the glass behind the Chicago Black Hawks goal with a powerful slap shot. Note just how much shorter the glass was back then, even behind the goals.
