The 1966-67 season of the NHL was a landmark season for the National Hockey League. This year marked the 50th year of play that took place. The 50th year anniversary was more than just a sentimental year though, this season brought changes to the league that would change the sport forever.

 

Since the 1940s the league had featured just 6 teams. These six teams would square off repeatedly during a season that lasted 70 games. This was exciting as rivalries were able to be built up, but it was time for the league to grow into what it could be. This season would be the last season in NHL history where they would have just 6 teams.

 

There were other things that made this season in hockey historically important. One of these things included the debut of Bobby Orr. Bobby Orr is known as being one of the greatest players to ever play in the NHL. He would make his NHL debut with the Boston Bruins.

 

Despite the addition of one of the all-time greats, the Bruins were not able to find success during the 1966-67 season. They managed to take home just 17 wins on the season while dropping 43 games. This record would leave them in the cellar of the league, winning 10 fewer games than the next worst team.

 

The Detroit Red Wings would be the second to worst team in the NHL. They managed to take home 27 wins on the season, but their record was not good enough to make the playoffs. The Red Wings and Bruins would be the two teams that season that did not qualify for the playoffs.

 

The 4th best team in the regular season was the New York Rangers. The Rangers managed to take home a record that was above a .500 win percentage. They would win 30 games while dropping 28. The Rangers were led that season by Phil Goyette. Goyette was not much of a goal scorer, but he was one of the great distributors of the puck that season. He dished out 49 assists on the season.

 

The Toronto Maple Leafs would secure the 3rd best regular season record with 32 wins and 27 losses on the season. While they weren’t super impressive during the season, they managed to take out the Black Hawks in the first round and advanced to the Stanley Cup. Their performance in the playoffs would make them the Stanley Cup Champions.

 

The Montreal Canadien would secure the 2nd best regular season record during the season. They were led by Bobby Rosseau and Henri Richard. These two players combine for 118 points on the season and they were good enough to keep the team in games on a nightly basis. The Canadiens would win 32 games on the season. This team would advance to the Stanley Cup Finals, but fell to the Maple Leafs in 6 games.

 

The Chicago Black Hawks were the top team in the league for years and managed to continue that reputation in the regular season. Unfortunately they were not able to come through in the playoffs. They would fall to the Maple Leafs in 6 games in the Semi-Finals.

1966 season in the NBA

The 1966-67 season of the NBA was the 21st season in the history of the National Basketball Association. The NBA had been dominated by the likes of the Lakers and Celtics for years, but the time was changing in the league and it was time for other teams to step up and make noise in the 1966 season. Two of the teams that would step up that season were the San Francisco Warriors and the Philadelphia 76ers.

 

The Warriors were led by 2nd year phenom Rick Barry. Barry had managed to win the Rookie of the Year award the previous year while making the All-NBA team in his first season in the league. This season he made a big impression by showing an incredible ability to score the basketball. Barry managed to score more points than any other player in the league in that season. At that time the league the scoring champion was awarded not by points per game, but instead by total points. Barry went on to score 2,775 points on the season.

 

Barry’s points were crucial for his team. The Western Division was the inferior division in that season, but he managed to lead his team to a 44-37 record on the season. The San Francisco Warriors were the only team that managed to win more than half of their games on the season.

 

One of the other dominant players of the year was Wilt Chamberlain. Chamberlain would win the Most Valuable Player of the Year awards for the Philadelphia 76ers. Chamberlain was a force underneath, as evidenced by his rebounding title. He would pull down 1,957 rebounds on the year. He also shot an incredible percentage of 68 percent on the season. These numbers were huge in helping the 76ers to have one  of the best NBA seasons of all time.

 

The 76ers managed to win a whopping 68 games on the season while only losing 13.

They would easily outdo the Celtics during the regular season. The Celtics were solid, with 60 wins, but could not match up to the 76ers.

 

This season featured a very lopsided finish to the regular season records. Of the 10 teams in the NBA only 3 teams managed to finish with a winning percentage over .500. These three teams would go on to become the biggest players in the playoffs that season.

 

Despite the fact that the Celtics were outdone in the regular season, nobody was counting them out for the NBA title. The Celtics has won an amazing amount of titles consecutively coming into the season and most people thought they would just flip on the switch and cruise to another championship. This would not be the case however. The Celtics were thwarted in their attempts to win another title, leaving their unprecedented consecutive championships streak at 8.

 

The 76ers would advance to the Finals to take on Rick Barry and the San Francisco Warriors. The Warriors were a solid team, but they did not have nearly the same success in the season as the 76ers. The 76ers were able to take out the Warriors in 6 games, becoming the NBA Champions.
