There are so many key moments of the Stanley Cup Finals last season, however these two may strand out over all of the rest of them.  Nathan Horton won the heart's of Bruins fans all over, but this emotional moment where he poured the Boston water on the Vancouver ice sent chills down the backs of many of their fans.  Tim Thomas is usually on this list for making a heroic save, but this time Tomas decided to make the save before the puck came to him by knocking Henrik Sedin out of his crease and onto the ice.

As strange as it seems, the hit on from Arron Rome that knocked Nathan Horton out of the series may have been the emotional lift the Bruins needed to bring home Lord Stanley.   Both teams were undefeated on their home ice so Horton decided to bring his own home ice to the road.  Hours before game seven Horton could be seen pouring water that was melted down from the TD Garden onto the ice in Vancouver.

Tim Thomas is usually on the highlight reels for his inhuman like saves.  He is no stranger to mixing it up with a forward either.  Henrik Sedin picked Dennis Seidenburg's pocket thinking he had a point blank attempt until Thomas decided it would be best send Sedin on his ass.  Once Sedin looked down hoping to bang an easy goal in before he even knew it he was staring at the rafters.  It was a solid hit, but of course Henrik embellished it a bit.
