May 4, 1978 - Bruins goalie Gerry Cheevers makes a save during the second period of a playoff game against the Philadelphia Flyers. (John Blanding/Globe Staff) #globearchive #nhl #hockey #nhlbruins #bruins #tdgarden #tbt #throwbackthursday #gerrycheevers
Kind of a duplicate post in light of the awesome #vghc shirt that arrived earlier today, but Gerry Cheever’s goalie mask is one of the most iconic in all of hockey and my very favorite.  Mr. Cheevers started his career before masks became popular, and eventually required, equipment with goaltenders - meaning he understood all too well how much damage a shot to the face would take in the form of stitches (goalies may just be a little crazy). After he adopted the mask to afford himself somewhat better protection, he would paint stitches on it each time he took a shot to the face, often saying something to the effect of “That’s only a four, that looks like a solid seven,” etc.  The mask is an amazing artifact to another era, and a battered example of his longevity, talent, and ability to take abuse like only a hockey player can.  His enshrinement in @thehockeyhalloffame  is a lasting testimony to the impact he had on the game.  Legend. #gerrycheevers  #nhl #bruins #goalies #badass
Legendary #detroitredwings and #torontomapleleafs #goalie #terrysawchuk shows the wear and tear of playing goal without a mask.  Face masks did not become standard equipment until 1966.  Several years later #bostonbruins netminder #gerrycheevers would mark where he had been struck by pucks on his mask by painting #stitches similar to Sawchuk’s real ones. #hockey

This week's featured artifact is Gerry Cheever’s #goalie glove, which is now on display in our #bostonbruins exhibit. Cheevers served on the #bruins as a player from 1965-1972, and after a 4-year stint in the new World #hockey Association, came back to not only play 5 more seasons for Boston, but also also went on to become our coach from 1980 to 1985. Cheevers is considered the first goalie to custom decorate his mask, having a new stitch mark added each time a puck struck him on the mask.
Gerry Cheevers: 1974-75 O-Pee-Chee WHA no. 30  #shutoutsunday  One of the better "money goalies" of his day, #gerrycheevers is one of the few players inducted into both the #hockey #halloffame and the #wha Hall of Fame. Best known for his iconic white mask covered in stitches, #cheesy was a two-time #stanleycup champion with the #bostonbruins.  In addition to his #nhl career, #cheevers was also one of the best goalies in the World Hockey Association. Playing four seasons with the #clevelandcrusaders, he was a three-time #allstar and won the Ben Hatskin Award for best #goaltender. However, the Avco Cup eluded him. Though he only played in half of the seasons the WHA existed, he stands second in GAA and shutouts.  #hockeycards #opeechee #goalie #bruins #crusaders #legend #combover #oldtimehockey #vintage
December 23, 1979 -  Before his team went into the stands, #hockeyhalloffame goaltender #gerrycheevers led the #bostonbruins to a 4-3 win over the #newyorkrangers at Madison Square Garden! #cheesy www.hofhockey.com
Guy at the gig: "Did you get that shot?" Me: "Yes, Gerry, I did." Guy: "Thats the shot of the night." Me: "Yes, Gerry. It is." Gerry Cheevers making sure I got the shot of Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito and himself just before going out on the ice. Timing is everything. #gerrycheevers #bostonbruins #hockey #bruins #msk #michaelsparkskeegan #photoshoot #bostongarden #nikonphotography #nikonphotographer #portrait #photo #philesposito #bobbyorr #nikon #4 #photooftheday #bigbadbruins #concertphotographer #goalie
