Found November 27, 2012 on NESN.com:
The Bruins had already survived one Game 7 against the Canadiens in the first round of the 2011 playoffs. So as the B’s prepared for a second winner-take-all game, this time against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals, fans should have been prepared to strap in for another roller-coaster ride. If only it was that easy. The game between the Bruins and Lightning was everything that hockey fans could have hoped for, as things remained scoreless — and penalty-less — until the game’s final moments. Both teams fought frantically for the slimmest of edges, as Tim Thomas and Dwayne Roloson pitched shutouts deep into the night, each hoping to extend his team’s season.
