What was once a dream for many, became reality. 7 years ago today, the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup for the first in 39 years. Whether you’re young or you’re old, you remember the 4-0 beatdown of the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7. You also probably remember Canucks fans lighting their own city on fire.
On the seven year anniversary of this incredible feat, let us remember:
The merlot line of Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell, and Shawn Thornton. This fourth line is arguably the best fourth line Boston has ever seen.
Nathan Horton’s brilliant Game 7 goal against the Montreal Canadiens to send the B’s to the semifinals.
Michael Ryder’s brilliant glove save.
The B’s sweeping the Flyers in the semifinals, now that was very satisfying.
And we cannot forget the Bruins defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Aaron Rome ruining Nathan Horton’s career. This is something I hate to remember, but I will never forget.
I didn’t want to make this post too long so lets just jump right into the best moment of the 2011 playoffs: Game 7 vs. Vancouver and the moment the Bruins won the Cup.
And finally, get the duck boats ready because we’re flashing back to the Stanley Cup victory parade!
Enjoy reminiscing Bruins fans, we’ll be seeing another Stanley Cup in Boston very soon!
