GIF Recap: Great moments in recent Bruins-Canucks history

One is the loneliest number... - Rich Lam

Why should BuzzFeed have all the fun? Get pumped up for tomorrow night's game against Vancouver with 30 glorious frames per second of various Bruins-Canucks happenings.

The Bruins will host Vancouver tomorrow night in the two teams' second game at the Garden since Game 6 of the 2011 Final.

The first regular season game after the Final was such a doozy that Canucks fans organized a forum-based movement to get dafoomie's highlights of the game removed from YouTube.

Yes, serious business.

So in the spirit of taking a look back, here's a GIF recap of some great moments in recent Bruins-Canucks history.

Note: dafoomie always uploads the best Bruins moments in HD, much better than the NHL's official service. Check out his channel and Twitter account, because many GIFs were created from his videos.

Here's Tim Thomas, in top playoff form, stoning Mason Raymond:

Milan Lucic did the same for Alex Burrows...

...but only after making sure Burrows' helmet worked well (with his fist).

Tim Thomas pretended he was chopping wood, but with Alex Burrows' leg...

Shawn Thornton yelled his favorite chili recipe across the ice to Ryan Kesler.

Speaking of Shawn Thornton, remember that time Dale Weise hid from him?

And it took six Canucks to contain him? What a monster.

Claude Julien occasionally has questions for the refs during these games.

Andrew Ference had some ginger beard conversation with a Sedin.

Let us all pause to remember Milan Lucic turning Kevin Bieksa into a traffic cone.

However, no player in these games is more interesting to watch than Brad Marchand. He likes to do things like this:

He also owns the worldwide high score in Punch-A-Swede.

But he's also good for plays like this one. Roberto Luongo still has nightmares about his wrist shot.

It's been fun though, Vancouver. Mainly because of this Patrice Bergeron goal.

All's well that ends well, right? Right.
