The Bruins' road to the team's first Stanley Cup in 39 years was not an easy one, but it was certainly memorable.
The first leg of that journey came to a close in Boston, with the B's hoping to beat the Montreal Canadiens in a winner-take-all Game 7. It would be the first of several Game 7's that Boston would face in their quest for the Cup, but there was no way of knowing what drama lay in store as the puck dropped.
Behind more late dramatics from Nathan Horton, the TD Garden faithful was in for one heck of a game.
Tune in to NESN beginning at 7:30 p.m. 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.

The hits keep coming for the Bruins, serving as a harsh reminder of the dangers of the NHL lockout.

NESN's Naoko Funayama reports that Bergeron has an upper-body injury, and he is day-to-day. Patrice Bergeron (HC...

When UCLA plays Arizona State on Saturday, the outcome will go a long way toward determining which team is a true challenger to favored USC in the Pac-12 South.
The Bruins (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) already have an ugly road loss at California. A victory on Saturday would put UCLA back into contention with three of its final four games at home, capped by visits from Stanford and USC.
First it was Tuukka and his delicate groin. Now Bergeron is questionable for games with an injury, according to Naoko Funayama.
Patrice Bergeron (HC Lugano) has upperbody injury. Day-to-day. Missed last game but practiced today. Questionable for tomorrow's game.

Looking at an 0-2 hole heading to Montreal, the Bruins had seized the momentum in their first-round playoff series against the Canadiens with back-to-back wins at the Bell Centre. Next, they had to make sure they kept it back on home ice.
It wouldn't be easy.
Game 5 of the 2011 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals would head into overtime, with Nathan Horton and the Bruins fighting...
