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.
Here's Tim Thomas, in top playoff form, stoning Mason Raymond:
Some German-on-German violence:
This old woman was having the time of her life after a Rich Peverley goal:
Mark Recchi offered Maxim Lapierre a bite to eat.
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...
...and then he tackled a Sedin, because why not?
Shawn Thornton yelled his favorite chili recipe across the ice to Ryan Kesler.
"DAMN IT! I SAID TO USE GROUND TURKEY, NOT BEEF!"
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.
