Bruins fans had been waiting 39 years for the team to win the Stanley Cup again. Finally, their wait would be coming to a close.
After six grueling games, Boston and Vancouver were heading for a winner-take-all showdown in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. Each team had held serve on their home ice thus far, but with the Presidents’ Cup-winning Canucks hosting the B’s for the last game of the season, all bets were off.
Tim Thomas kept up his Vezina Trophy-winning ways, making 37 saves for the shutout as the Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0. Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand each scored twice as the Bruins cruised to victory in memorable fashion.
Tune in at 7 p.m. on Wednesday for all the action, and be sure to join the conversation on social media by using the #Bruins2011 hashtag during the broadcast.

CSNNE Bruins reporter Joe Haggerty tweeted out this picture (via The Score) on Tuesday night and it shows what I am assuming is a diehard B’s fan and his new tattoo. According to The Score, Tyler Seguin signed this dude’s arm and then the fan decided to get that signature permanently tattooed into his skin right next to what appears to be a terribly illustrated Stanley Cup in...
Zdeno Chara and Miroslav Satan have built a friendship over the years as a pair of Slovakian hockey players who made good in the NHL. They were teammates in international competition, and they were even teammates a few years back with the Bruins. Whatever friendship they might have had, however, is over, at least in Satan’s eyes. The veteran forward is steamed and upset with Chara...

Jordan Caron isn’t the flashiest hockey player, but he has NHL dreams all the same.
The 22-year-old is resigned to the fact that he will never out-skate opponents, and never throw a sick deke to to leave a goaltender confused. However, what Caron does do well is grind out shifts and use his physicality as a defense-first forward — just the kind of player that Bruins coach Claude...
Boston Bruins top prospect Malcolm Subban will be attending the Team Canada world junior selection camp this week as he tries to earn himself the starting goaltender position for Canada in the world junior championships. Subban, currently playing for the Belleville Bulls in the OHL, is said to be competing with three other goaltenders for [...]
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...
Bruins star Tyler Seguin is quickly becoming a star in the NHL and has become a fan favorite in Boston and one man wanted to show his admiration for the young star.

On the message boards as of late, there has been much debate over where Zack Kassian will one day fit in with the Vancouver Canucks. Some have said he will be nothing more than a fourth-line player, who may chip in 10-15 goals at the height of his career. While other stand pat that Kassian will...
Remember this hit:
Well of course you do. Anyways, it has pissed of Miroslav Satan to the point where he doesn't want to be friends with Zdeno Chara anymore. This coming from the man who was Chara's best man at his wedding.
NESN wrote about it this morning:
“I have played hockey for 30 years,” Satan said after the game, according to the KHL’s...
While the holidays are a time for spending time at home with family, not everyone will be so lucky.
That’s why the Bruins continue on with their annual holiday toy event, which gives about $22,000 worth of toys to children in local hospitals who aren’t make it home this season. Recently Bruins president Cam Neely and coach Claude Julien headed out to Target as part of the event...
One of the most accomplished members of the Boston sports media is Dale Arnold. Arnold is currently working with NESN, hosting NESN Daily and pre/post game coverage of Bruins games. Previously he co-hosted The Dale & Holley Show show middays on WEEI, although he still hosts weekend shows, including NFL Sunday on Sunday mornings. Before coming onto the Boston scene he did play...
