boucher was playing awful.
i think he gave up 5, 3, 4, and 4 goals if i remember correctly.
he got injured in the early 2nd period of game 5. bos would have most certainly gotten to him.

if boston didnt win the cup last year i would still be hurting from that series. total depression mode that following saturday. i'll never forget it.

People like to crap on the Bruins for that series, but honestly- in any professional sport you are going to get crazy things like this happening every once in awhile just as a product of playing so many games. It hadn't happened for decades, and it probably won't happen again for a few decades. I think it had more to do with bad luck than being a simple collapse by the Bruins.

Exactly. A big hit to go along with a heart and soul player for the Flyers coming back made a huge difference.

I also think that hit on Burrows from Richards was a huge boost.

I'll give you that. I think we would've lost Game 6 if Boosh didn't go down. Leighton stole that one for us, insane to think about in retrospect given his play in the SCF.

Because the Bruins had crap forward depth, especially after your first line center goes down.

Add in Thomas not playing and Seidenberg being hurt.

Using Rask over Thomas that year was a mistake. I think everyone knows that now, but then again, Thomas was said to not have been 100% at the time. Despite Rask's numbers that year, I was not that impressed by him.

I would say injuries were a big factor, but as a Canucks fan, I've been told countless times that injuries aren't an excuse. I would say the 3-0 lead flattered the Bruins and wasn't indicative of how close the series was. Things have a way of balancing themselves out.

Gagne, Hartnell, and the Amazing Technicolor Garbage Goals.

Blake Wheeler - Patrice Bergeron - Mark Recchi
Milan Lucic - Marc Savard (PCS) - Miroslav Satan
Daniel Paille - Vladimir Sobotka - Michael Ryder
Steve Begin - Trent Whitfield - Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara - Johnny Boychuk
Mark Stuart - Dennis Wideman
Andrew Ference - Matt Hunwick

Tuukka Rask
Tim Thomas

Out:
M Sturm Torn Acl
D Seidenberg Arm Injury
A Mcquaid Knee Injury
D Krejci Wrist Injury



While each game was close, Simon Gange coming back and the injury to Krejci in the same game was the the turning point of the series.

While the bolded is inexcusable, Krejci wasn't the only loss.


Savard had just come back from the Cooke hit which happened 2 months prior (he wasn't the same player by any stretch), Seidenberg didn't play in that year's playoffs, Sturm went down with his yearly knee injury, and Thomas had been injured all year leaving the goaltending to Rask who was a rookie. This left the top 9 to include Sobotka, Paille, and Satan.

Thomas was a lot less than 100%... he had hip surgery during the offseason.
