National Hockey League (NHL) Season Review 1969-1970

National Hockey League (NHL) Season Review 1969-1970

The Boston Bruins finished tied with the Chicago Blackhawks for first place in the East Division. Both teams had 99 points, while the third-place Red Wings had 95 and the fourth-place New York Rangers 92. The St. Louis Blues won the West Division by 22 points over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Bobby Orr became the first defenseman to lead the NHL in scoring winning the Ross Trophy. He was also awarded the Hart Trophy as the regular-season MVP and won third consecutive Norris Trophy as the best defenseman. In addition he was awarded the Conn Smythe as the MVP of the playoffs.

In the playoffs the Bruins beat the New York Rangers in a six-game series and swept the Blackhawks in the division finals. In the West the St Louis Blues eliminated Minnesota and Pittsburgh, both in six games.

For the third straight year St. Louis was swept in the final series as Boston won the Stanley Cup.
