Game 6 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final was a must-win for the Bruins. Luckily, that’s what they did best at the TD Garden that series.
Roberto Luongo didn’t last the night as the B’s continued to beat up the Canucks in Boston, making the last home game of the year a memorable one. The Vancouver goalie was pulled just 8:35 into the game after allowing three goals in the span of three minutes to spot the B’s a lead they would never relinquish.
Five different players scored for the Bruins as they rallied behind another strong effort by Tim Thomas, setting up a winner-take-all showdown in Vancouver for Game 7.
Tune in at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday 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.
