Bobby Smith wore "B SMITH" on his jersey due to left winger Derrick Smith being a member of the North Stars during the final two seasons of Bobby's career.
In today's video section, Smith wins a game in overtime for Montreal against the rival Bruins during the 1989 playoffs, much to the delight of his teammates and the home fans.
Here is footage from the night the North Stars finally stood their ground against the Boston Bruins in 1981 at the Boston Garden, an arena they had never won a game in - ever - dating back 14 seasons to the North Stars inception in 1967. While they lost this game, they made a statement that they were not going to be intimidated any longer, having recently had John Wensink challenge the Minnesota bench during a game. This stand was a turning point for the franchise and they proceeded to knock the Bruins out of the playoffs later that season, which included two victories in Boston, and were on their way to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time ever.
