Never watched other playoff goalie highlights, but the B's sure gave up a lot of good goal scoring chances.

Thomas tracked the puck with incredible skill those playoffs, and never gave up on
any save. God mode.

Aside from the obvious game 7 wins… some of my favorite moments from the cup run…

Game 4 against Montreal… Montreal scores 2 quick one midway through the 2nd to take a 3-1 lead. Bruins staring a 3 games to 1 deficit in the face, they man up, take control of the game, have an equipment malfunction, come back and win 5-4 in OT.

Game 5 against Montreal… This game was epic in my book. The crowd at the Garden was phenomenal. 0-0 going into the 3rd (Thanks to Ryder’s glove save in the 1st), bruins take the lead only to see Montreal tie it with about 6:00 to play. We go to OT, both teams had their chances but cannot cash in. We go to double OT, Tim Thomas makes the save of the playoffs in my opinion on that 2on1. Horton Scores 2 or 3 minutes later to give the Bruins a 3-2 series lead.

Game 2 against Philly… This is the one game that Timmy flat-out stole in this cup run. Yes, he played great during the run, but this is the one game that I feel the Bruins won but had no business winning (well maybe game 5 in the Tampa Series). Bruins spot the Flyers a very early 2-0 lead thanks to 2 goals from JVR. Bruins actually tie the game at 2 before the 1st intermission. Meanwhile Tim Thomas makes 50+ saves, Bruins win on a Krejci OT goal that had to go to Video Review.

These are losses but I thought were great games… Game 4 against Tampa was a little bit of dejavu. Bruins blow a 3-0 lead to lose 4-3, same scenario that occurred just 53 weeks earlier, with the same guy (Simon Gagne) scoring the game winning goal. Game 6 against Tampa I thought was great back-and forth game. All 3 losses against Vancouver I though were pretty entertaining games as well.

I was there and the Philly crowd was as loud as any I have ever heard. Not only did they want blood from what happened in Game 1 but then this happened.



Certainly nobody thought it would be the last game of the season in South Philly but it was.

Before the game I met a Flyers fan who made Rocky Balboa look like a rocket scientist. He said the Flyers are the defending champions and we will not lose to you. I said 'Ummm the Blackhawks won the Cup last year beating the Flyers' and he replied 'Yes, but Vancouver eliminated Chicago which makes us champions."

The morning of game 7 was brutal. All my friends were trying to get me to go to a bar or a friends party. But I watched it at home. With just my girlfriend. Then once it was over I went out.

No need for the way certain media members treated him. They can **** right off. One of my all-time favorite Bruins. Thanks for posting the video.

Brady didn't go and it was fine, still don't know why it was made out to be such a big deal.

I know it's a huge bone of contention on this board when members say Tim Thomas almost singlehandedly won the Cup, but some of those saves were otherworldly. He was in such a zone.

Best night of my life as a fan of any team in any sport.

Looking at these clips and how far the team is from that makes me sad. Great run, great games, great time, but man, Sweeney has his work cut out to get them back to this level.

It REALLY fits.

As for the day.

After game 5 I was devestated. I was convinced we would lose in 6 and wonder where things went wrong. They played so well at home and couldn't win in Vancouver. I lost faith. I went to bed at 830pm that night.

Game 6 comes and I watch video that Don Cherry played that showed them coming out to the bench and "soaking it in" But Cherry was mad because they hadn't done that before.
Game 6 starts and less than 6 minutes in and it's 1-0 and they just went from there.

After game 6 I said "All they have to do is win one now."

It's 3-0 in the 3rd with 8 minutes left and they show a shot of Mark's recchi's family and his girls were about the same age as mine and I said "That's Mark Recchi's family, he's playing in his last game because they're going to ........" I couldn't get the word out. That's when it hit me.

It's still a blur, a dream, that happened last night.

Sports wise I don't know if it'll ever get any better than that. The wait, the anguish of 1988, 1990, 2009, 2010.

I was not feeling "up to snuff" the next morning. But I really didn't care. They played "we are the champions" on the way to work and I screamed, I sang, I laughed and I cried, pretty much all at once.

Go Bruins. 4 life.

Fixed it for you, Scott...

On a positive, they showed a lot of growth last season. They're headed in the right direction and they have a lot of young players that should start contributing to the big club in the next couple of seasons. It still stings watching the freaking Penguins hoist the cup twice in a row, and seeing how far down the B's fell after a way too brief stay at the top. They were poised to make an extended run and the arrogance of the front office pissed it away and had to start over.
