After taking care of business against old foes like Montreal and Philadelphia, the next team the Bruins would face in their 2011 Stanley Cup run was a bit of an upstart — the Tampa Bay Lightning.
After defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round and sweeping the top-seeded Washington Capitals in the second, the Lightning were riding high as they ventured into the TD Garden for what would be a memorable series from start to finish.
In Game 1, Tyler Seguin would make his playoff debut in the hopes of sparking the Bruins’ offense, but it was the Lightning who struck first to set the tone early in the series.
Tune in to NESN at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday to relive all the action, and 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.

Tyler Seguin and his EHC Biel teammates had a long break in action recently so the 20–year-old Bruins sniper did what any sane Black and Gold superstar would do — he headed back to New England.
On Tuesday, Seguin and his buddies from EchoStor took a stroll down to Bristol, Conn., to check out ESPN headquarters. There, the forward was given a tour of The Worldwide Leader and stopped...
The Bruins had an easy time in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers. The conference finals would be a totally different animal.
Fresh off a loss from Game 1 to the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Bruins looked to bounce back in an important Game 2 at the TD Garden. While the B’s had shown an ability to come back from a 0-2 hole against Montreal earlier in...
With the NHL Lockout dragging on, players have found success in Europe. Bruins’ star Tyler Seguin has been killin’ it in the Swiss League for EHC Biel/Bienne. Seguin is scoring at a TORRID pace on the ice (23 pts=13 goals & 10 assists) and probably with the Swiss ladies as well.
The ladies are probably swooning over “The Kid” even more after the club’s latest “Be...
