Boston Bruins to face Vancouver Canucks in 2011 Stanley Cup Finals – and Clarence has Returned!

How could I ignore the Bruins going to their first Stanley Cup finals since 1990?

While I may have been away from the blog, I’ve been intently watching this Bruins team as it has placed a stranglehold around it’s fans hearts by winning their first three rounds in the 2011 NHL playoffs.

It’s been a while, and the Finals start tomorrow night in Vancouver, so here’s a quick summary of what has happened since my last post:

  • Blake Wheeler is gone
  • Tyler Seguin is BACK
  • Elizabeth Taylor is Dead
  • After losing the first two games at home, the Bruins beat Montreal in a thrilling game 7 OT classic. A Nathan Horton goal sends fans into a state of nirvana in the streets surrounding the Garden.
  • Osama Bin Laden – DEAD.
  • Bruins then sweep the Flyers in four straight, proving they CAN close out a 3-0 lead. Redemption? Check.
  • Our hometown heroes then knock off the Tampa Bay Lightning in another 7-game instant classic, with Horton again delivering the game 7 winner in a 1-0 thriller.

Sit back and enjoy, Bruins fans…who knows when this may come around again.

Here’s an interesting perspective from a Vancouver TV station…including the demise of the mysteriously-named “Boston Pizza”.

  1. Very good post bud. I think that the Canucks have the edge in the series. The only thing I don’t have them edging the Bruins in is goaltending but with the way Thomas has been playing you can’t really say the Bruins have the edge here. Nevertheless, Thomas could get hot at any time and that could be very scary for the Canucks. The depth on defence or offence for the Bruins doesn’t quite match up with Vancouver, especially with Malhotra coming back. The Bruins should hope that Ryan Kesler still isn’t 100% because if he is they’re going to have some problems matching up with all the Canucks can throw at them. The Canucks should beat the Bruins but anything can happen in the NHL playoffs and an upset isn’t out of the question by any means. Should be an outstanding series for sure. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I wanna know what you think. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/05/31/why-isnt-anyone-worried-about-ryan-kesler/
