In the next couple of weeks we will be bringing you sixteen of the top moments of the Boston Bruins 2010-11 season. We have separated the nominees into two categories: Post season and regular season moments. We will have a poll question each day for you to pick your winner until we are down to the best moment of the year.
The first two come courtesy of round one vs. the hated Canadiens. There were many stunning moments from this nail biting series, however these two may stand out the most.
Round one against Montreal was Micheal Ryder's comming out party. He and his linemate Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly straped the team on their back for a memorable run. One moment no Bruin fan will forget is the goal robbing glove save that Ryder had on center Tomas Plekanic.

Nathan Horton had his up and downs in the regular seaon, but proved in his first post season apperence that he has what it takes to become a winner. This wasn't Horton first game winner, however if the power forward hadn't found the back of the net during overtime in game seven we never would have wittnessed the one he had against Tampa Bay yet again in game seven.
