Marcus Foligno channels Bobby Orr's "the goal"

In 1970, Bruins defenseman Bobby Orr scored one of the most famous goals in NHL history.

It was Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals and it was overtime.

Orr collected a pass from Derek Sanderson, slid one by  goalie Glenn Hall and proceed to fly through the air in jubilation courtesy of Blues d-man Noel Picard.

The goal, as well as the 4-0 sweep of the Blues, brought the Bruins the Cup for the first time in 29 years.

Here's the video:

Last night in Columbus Sabres young gun Marcus Foligno found himself flying Orr-like through the air after his second goal of the game:

Special thanks to theoryneutral and the NHL for access to those two videos.
