Potvin passes Orr

In another edition of NY's Greatest Hockey Rivalry, Denis Potvin passes Bobby Orr in career points in a 2-2 tie at MSG.  Premieres tonight at 7 on MSG Network.
(Also airs at  2AM, 10AM and 4PM tomorrow and at noon Saturday)

This game was played during winter break of my senior year in College -- could it really be this long ago???
