Bruins legend Bobby Orr was in attendance as the Bruins rallied to a 2-1 overtime win over the Florida Panthers on Thursday, and his presence continued to have an effect on even the most experienced Bruins players.

“Obviously, he’s a legend of the game and always such a gentleman and so nice to all of us,” said 16-year Bruin Patrice Bergeron before the game. “Always makes sure he says ‘Hi’ or shakes our hands and wishes us all the best. So it’s always a treat and a pleasure to meet him and see him.”

Orr scored 888 points (264 goals, 624 assists) in 10 seasons with the Bruins from 1966-76.
