The Bruins played the role of spoiler on Monday night, rallying from a 4-1 deficit to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. B’s winger Milan Lucic was spearheaded that charge.
With 20 minutes to go and a 3-goal deficit to overcome, Lucic stepped on the gas and assisted on Nathan Horton‘s goal which trimmed the Leafs’ lead to two. Lucic says he told his teammates in the huddle, “we just need one more, you never know.”
Lucic was an important factor in the win, and truly showed his veteran experience.
Check out the video above to hear about how Lucic helped his team rally back for the win.

Zdeno Chara, Milan Lucic, and Claude Julien talk after the Bruins thrilling comeback OT Game 7 win.
A.B. Post-playoff-series handshakes are one of the greatest parts of the NHL. After beating the crap out of each other for 7 straight games for the right to advance one more round closer to the cup, grown men put aside their hatreds and shake hands at center ice.
And as surprising as the Boston Bruins comeback tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs was, there was something...

This weekend, an image of Fraser’s purported CT scan surfaced on the Internet and showed some significant damage to the defenseman’s skull. The image hasn’t been confirmed (although it does...
BOSTON — The failure to live up to expectations in sports breeds change. It always has and always will. So as the Bruins looked ready to choke away a 3-1 series lead to Toronto with a Game 7 loss on Monday night, it was far from unnatural to think that changes may be coming for the B’s.
And while the roster may be retooled in the offseason, it’s unlikely that seismic changes...

I am sitting here reflecting on what happened last night with the Bruins and Maple Leafs. I still can't believe what we saw. Going along with my last post, the Bruins never like to make it easy on themselves. Boston teams in general always have to make their...
What night of hockey... The Boston Bruins scored two goals by Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron 31 seconds in the waning minutes of the third period to force the overtime period. At one point in the third period, the Boston Bruins were down 4-1.
You could tell by the body language of Maple Leafs that the game tying goal was a back breaker and I had a feeling that the Bruins were...
