The 2010/2011 Boston Bruins worked their way into the playoffs.
This was the 87th year for the franchise. Enjoy these key year-end highlights.
April 27- Eastern Conference Quarter Finals: Defeated Montreal Canadiens.
May 6- Eastern Conference Semi-Finals: Swept Philadelphia Flyers.
May 27- Eastern Conference Finals: Defeated Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Bruins lost the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals at Vancouver.
But just five minutes into Game 3, Canuck Aaron Rome deliberately left his feet to blind-side Nathan Horton in the head. Horton left on a stretcher.
Rome had poked the B-Hive. Between periods Captain Zdeno Chara
breathed fire in the locker room, and crystallized their resolve around Horton. They returned to the ice and crushed Vancouver 8-1 for ‘Horty’.
That resolve continued into Game 4 with the help of the great #4 Bobby Orr
rallying the crowd before a 4-0 Bruins shut out.
But back in Vancouver, with the best of seven series tied at 2-2,
the Bruins lost a one goal heart breaker in game 5.
The reincarnated Bruins ‘Lunch Pail Gang’ evens the series 3-3 in Boston.
Then they faced game 7 – on the road
A special thanks to these Boston favorites for being part of it on the air
on their sites, socially. Better than the old days!
