Greatest Moment of the 2010-11 season: Finals- Horton vs. Montreal Line Brawl

New, comments


It has finally come down to the two key moments voted by all of you. It comes as no surprise that the Montreal Canadiens are a part of each of these moments. Nathan Horton's series clinching goal takes the cake for the post season moments while the full line brawl between the Bruins and Canadiens including a scrap between Tim Thomas and Carey Price is the unanimous regular season winner.

Finally someone knocked out Tim Thomas. The couple of Thomas moments cruised through this tournament looking like one would be a shoe in for the finals. However yet again knocking the Canadiens out of the playoffs is just too sweet to pass. A lot of people forget the ridiculous save that Thomas made on Brian Gionta in game five in double overtime. It is very possible that the Horton goal would never have happened if Thomas didn't save the night once again, but then again Horton netted the most important goal or moment for that entire series.

Three of the four Bruins vs Canadiens moments made it to the semi-finals. It seems that all of us just love to watch any moment that has a negative outcome for the Canadiens. The line brawl is something that will be remembered for a long time. Unfortunally Cambell's 3 on 5 goal that was a thing of beauty will just get lost within the rest of last year's highlights. The Thomas/Price fight may have been horrible, but it was the icing on the cake when the other ten guys on the ice are scrapping.
