Did Alexandre Burrows bite Patrice Bergeron during Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final? The referees then said no, but the Bruins — and the team’s fans — knew better.
So when the B’s and Canucks took the ice for Game 2, after Boston suffered a last-second defeat to Vancouver in the opening game, it quickly became clear that these two teams did not like each other. That mutual dislike, however, translated into some pretty exciting hockey.
Hoping to avoid another 0-2 hole in a playoff series, the Bruins gave Roberto Luongo and Co. everything they could handle, heading into overtime with a chance to even the series.
Tune in at 8 p.m. on Thursday for all the action, and be sure to join the conversation on social media by using the #Bruins2011 hashtag during the broadcast. Also, keep an eye out for more upcoming NESN broadcasts of games from the Bruins’ historic Stanley Cup run.

Cory Schneider is in Switzerland and “ready to go” according to his agent Mike...
Boston Bruins center Marc Savard hasn’t played an NHL game since January of 2011 due to his ongoing problems with concussions and it appears as if he is planning for his future off the ice. Savard said on his Twitter page, @MSavvy91, that he would like to coach junior league hockey once he finally hangs [...]
How stereotypical of me. Anywho, one of my fabulous Twitter followers posted this (even though she's a Habs fan). Mark Recchi was inducted into the Hall of Fame! Oh wait, hold on, it's the National Italian-American sports Hall of Fame. Whatever, Recchi deserves it because Recchi is a ******* boss.
A real Italian-American BAWSS!
Derek Sanderson is one of the most enigmatic characters the sport of hockey (as well as the city of Boston) has ever seen. It’s about time he wrote a book.
The Bruins great’s book, Crossing the Line, is in stores, and he dropped by NESN on Thursday night to chat about the tell-all book with Naoko Funayama. The new release details some of the more intimate details of a hockey...
After beating the Montreal Canadiens, Philadelphia Flyers and Tampa Bay Lightning, the Bruins finally reached the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
Their final adversary would be the Vancouver Canucks, owners of the Presidents’ Trophy and the No. 1 overall seed in the NHL playoffs.
With the likes of Roberto Luongo and Henrik and Daniel Sedin leading the way, the Canucks had breezed through...
Bobby Carpenter may not have quite lived up to the potential that landed him on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1981, but he did put together a serviceable 21-year career that included four seasons with the Boston Bruins.
He also raised his daughter, Alex Carpenter, to be one heck of a hockey player, herself. Ranked as one of the top women’s hockey players in the country, the...
It’s probably not the best time to talk about the NHL and money, but ignoring Forbes’ latest report won’t lift the lockout.
According to Forbes, the most-valuable NHL franchise, the Toronto Maple Leafs, are the first NHL team worth $1 billion, while the Boston Bruins ($348 million) are the fifth-most valuable NHL franchise.
The New York Rangers ($750 million) are second-most...
