2010/11 Boston Bruins NHL 8x10 Photograph Stanley Cup Champs On Ice Celebration
In the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Bruins became the first team in National Hockey League history to win a playoff series without scoring a powerplay goal, as they eliminated the Montreal Canadiens in 7 games on home ice at the TD Garden. On May 6, 2011, the Boston Bruins swept the Philadelphia Flyers on home ice to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 1992, where they defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in seven games and advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1990 to face the Vancouver Canucks. The Bruins lost the first two games of the series in very close contests, 10, on a goal with less than 19 seconds left in regulation, and then 32 in overtime. The third game of the series did not start well for the Bruins, either, as they lost first-line forward Nathan Horton to injury at the 5:07 mark of the first period after a hit by Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome that left Horton prone on the ice for nearly 10 minutes. Despite losing Horton to a devastating hit, the Bruins defeated the Canucks, with 4 goals in each of the second and third periods, twice scoring short-handed goals, and going on to win, 81. It was the highest score by one team, and largest winning margin, in a Finals game since 1996. Game 4 followed this up, with the Bruins defeating the Canucks in a 40 shutout. The tendency for the home team to be the winner in the series continued, with Game 5 in Vancouver going to the Canucks in a 10 shutout, then Game 6 being another triumph for the Bruins with a 52 defeat of the Canucks, in which the Bruins set a new record for the quickest four goals ever in a playoff series game, scoring in only 4:14 of game time in the first period of Game 6. Game 7, which was played in Vancouver on June 15, was the first time the Bruins have ever played in a Stanley Cup final series game 7 situation. The Bruins shut out Vancouver 40, winning the sixth cup in the team's history and breaking a 39 year "cup drought." The 2011 Bruins were the first team in NHL history to win a game 7 three times in the playoffs.
