Boneman's Bruins Are Gonna Play For The Cup!

In a very exciting Game 7 tonight, the Boston Bruins claimed the 2011 Eastern Conference Championship by edging Tampa Bay 1-0! They'll begin what should be an epic Stanley Cup Final against the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night, marking the first time Boston's been there since 1990, I believe. As for the Canucks...

Well, if my memory serves, it was 1994 the last time Vancouver vied for the Cup, and they came very, very close to winning it that year. I seem to recall a Game 7 then, as well... Fortune smiled on us long-suffering Rangers fans on that historic Tuesday evening, indeed, and we got a Game 7 for the Ages! Maybe Boneman will be equally blessed by the time the dust settles on 2011's big matchup.

For me, it was an exciting game to watch. And although by saying, "...that was a great game...", I could be accused of simply being biased towards the winning team, I have to believe that regardless of the winner, the game was fun to watch.

Obviously, the tip in by Horton (who had left the game for a spell earlier after having been hit awkwardly), put my heart somewhat at ease...that is, until the ensuing faceoff took place.

I can't say that I expect too much in the finals. I personally believe that Vancouver is just too good (regardless of who came out of the East -- all 8 teams included). But I'm happy that my B's made it back to the promised land. Neely is wearing a suit now, rather than a jersey, but it doesn't look like he's lost any of his intensity!
