Boston Bruins v Vancouver Canucks - Game Seven

Photo by Elsa/Getty Images

Injuries and no-shows by their star players did the Canucks in.
All the Bruins – including the fourth line – played like they wanted the Stanley Cup.
And they got it.
We thought Tim Thomas might be better than Roberto Luongo.
But did anyone expect Brad Marchand to outplay Henrik and Daniel Sedin … by a lot?
In the most important hockey game of their lives, the twins were matching minus-4s. Mike Milbuiry must be pissing himself laughing.
My series turning point?
Dan Hamhuis goes low to check Milan Lucic in the second period of Game 1.
It was the last play of the Stanley Cup final for Vancouver’s steadiest Dman.
Then Kevin Bieksa’s new partner, Aaron Rome, got suspended … and that was the ballgame.
The Bruins had their way in the Vancouver end throughout the series.
Another key: the Vancouver power-play was just putrid.
And history was made: Vancouver became the first Canadian team to lose the Cup on home ice in Game 7.
And Boston became the first team to win three Game 7s – coming back from 0-2 twice.
What the heck, we didn’t really want Chris Higgins and Maxim Lapierre to get their names on the Cup, right?
Let history record that Boston toughest challenge, en route to the Cup, was beating your Montreal Canadiens.
Three OT losses, including Game 7.
Habs against the Cup finalists this season: 9-6.
We’ll cry all summer long.
And props to the Vancouver fans, who took time out from heartbreak to boo the stuffing out of Gary Bettman.
And showed class by cheering Tim Thomas.

    Well I personally think the Bruins deserved the Cup. They may be our bitter rivals, but they played hard and made sure that Vancouver had no free rides. So congratulations to them. Plus, it could be worse… It could have been Toronto!

    To those that say there is a conspiracy, I really have to question that. Even if there is (and that’s a big IF by the way), that doesn’t effect how the Bruins played. The refs either let things go or at least evened it up. If there was a conspiracy, I think the penalties would have been slightly more lopsided. And the refs had no bearing on how easy Tim Thomas made it look.

    And I agree with the shout-out… Tim Thomas was amazing. And it blows my mind that he is not up for the Hart.

    At least this way, we don’t have to hear from CBC and TSN about Vancouver being the team we should all love anymore.

    On to the draft! How many sleeps until puck drop?

      Yup my thoughts exactly. CBC was beating the Nucks into our skulls. Aurghhhh

      I am enjoying seeing the cops beating some fake nucks fan. FAIL

  2. 100HABS says:

    Who believes the Bruins would have won this series had the officiating been more like the regular season and most of the rest of the playoffs?

    I believe that the NHL (and C. Campbell) intentionally gave this cup to USA (Boston) over Canada (Vancouver).

    In Bettman’s mind, it is a better marketing strategy.

    • SeriousFan09 says:

      VAN mailed this series in when they were on Boston’s ice and that’s what ended it. Officiating may not have been very good, but the Canucks screwed themselves over on this one, couldn’t pump a puck past Thomas or even try really hard to for most of the series.

      • EricInStL says:

        I think it was a bunch of factors:
        1) Vigneault was outcoached by Julien, wow.
        2) Burrows disappearing after the Lucic finger incident
        3) The team not having confidence in Luongo after a goal, a bit like Price 2 years ago
        4) The Vancouver Defense was decimated
        5) And the Canucks as a whole did not pushing back, they should have used Torres more like Julien used Thornton. To disrupt.

        All in all next year Vigneault has a short rope and will be fired at the first losing streak. As for Julien, he might be like Jean Perron.

      • 100HABS says:

        I agree the Canucks were short on push-back and high on diving. But still, the Bruins should have had more penalty calls.

        In game 6, at 4-1, the Canucks were pressing and seemed poised for a come-back. Two (yes, 2) quick penalties and the wind was taken from their sails.

        Bettman/Campbell decided this series.

    • Batalla says:

      How did he do that exactly? Do you think he injured Hammy? Do you think that Rome was that key a player that his suspension cost the ‘Nucks?

      Whether Chara should have got suspended or not. Whether Ference was a douche or not. All of this doesn’t add up to an automatic Cup win. Vancouver had it in their sights. And I doubt a memo came from on-high to throw the game!

      http://habsbros.blogspot.com/

      • 100HABS says:

        There is a line drawn where a penalty is called and where it isn’t. The line in this series was on the most “robust” side as any series I’ve seen since the 80′s. Moving the line to that side was a clear advantage to the Bruins’ grinding team over the Canucks’ skill team.

        That, my friend, is exactly how they did it.

    • frozengolf says:

      I agree 100%. Bettmen got his $2 billion contract with NBC and wanted no part in a Canadian team winning. Just look at all the suspension the B’s got a pass on: Chara on Pac; Ference giving his one finger salute in Montreal; Horton suqirting the fan; and don’t forget the extra harsh suspension on Rome when he hit a Bruin! Conspiracy!

    • MontrealAtheist says:

      It’s not Bettman’s fault that Luongo choked and the Twins were reduced to their ineffective feminine selves last night.

  3. Frank2468 says:

    I was so disgusted with the no show again tonight that as soon as the game came to an end I immediately turned off the T.V. I couldn’t stomach watching Chara hoist the cup. If memory serves there were 2 lock outs 2004 and the 2010 2011 season right? Well the Boston Bettman Campbell Bruins got what they wanted, no cup in Canada. After all it’s the American market that sells the game right? I know this would never happen but I would love to have an us versus them in the NHL. Meaning if your Canadian born you have to play for one of the now 7 Canadian teams and all 7 teams have to be made up of Canadian born players and the all the US teams have to have American players, and of course European players can play for whom ever they wanted Canadian or American team. Well one can only dream because I’d love to see how many American teams win the cup without Canadian born players on their roster?

    Like bad gas this too shall pass

    • MontrealAtheist says:

      How many of those Canadian-born players in US teams also have US citizenship? The distinction between “us” and “them” becomes somewhat blurry when so many players are holding both citizenships.

  4. otter649 says:

    Way to go refs spoiling the game with no pentalty calls early in the game & then finally make a call late in the second period and a couple of weak calls later on. If these refs are The NHL’s best then the league is in trouble……

    Hats off to the Bruins. They won and nothing else matters – not even the Jacobs-Bettman love-in or the Campbell Connection. Tim Thomas is a deserving Smythe (and Vezina) winner. I can’t say I would want Marchand or Lucik or Ference or Recchi on my team, but congrats to the rest of the Bruins roster, even that dirty **** Chara, who when he is not maliciously breaking the necks of vulnerable players is an impressive player.

    That Luongo contract is looking pretty bad right about now, right? Makes me feel a little better about Gomez :)

    we can say what we want, the cup belongs to Boston till some
    other team wins it. their management built a stanley cup team something the Habs have not been able to do as of yet, so we’ll just have to sit back and see what happens 2011-2012.

    Have a good summer everyone.

  16. EricInStL says:

    Thanks Vancouver, you’re making people forget the Montreal Riots, at least we riot when we win. FAIL.

  17. Rob D says:

    I have never been surer that a team was done after one goal more times in one series than I was with Vancouver. Absolutely no push back ability. Granted, the officiating was from the 70`s (even high sticks to the face were met with indifference from the officials) and that greatly impacted the series. but Van City probably should have been swept or lost in 5 games. They were that bad as a team. Wouldn’t want to be Luongo for the next 5 years or so..he’ll never live this down.

    I never have liked the Sedins..but respected their obvious abilities. After this effort, I don’t think my respect for them will grow past the “grudging”.

    I would give many draft picks for Ryan Kesler. He should hold his head high because he gave everything he had. One suspects that the Sedins have plenty of energy left and I would suggest they use it to get the heck out of Dodge City..gonna be a while before they are the golden boys again out west.

    Boston..my preseason pick to win the Cup. I have never been unhappier to be right in my life! ..lol..

    Anybody who thinks the NHL is the elite or that we NHL fans are witnessing the most exciting and best hockey entertainment should take a look at this video. The NHL is mediocre. There are no great teams. Everyone is equal. Mundane.

    International hockey is the best and I also believe that the level of play in the European and Russian leagues is superior to what the NHL produces.

    Tonight hockey loses.

    Here is the good news. Next season the Bruins will be toast by the time the season ends. The Habs will win the NE division.

    • Duracell3 says:

      Kovalev’s goal against the US in the 2004 World Cup is still in my opinion the greatest goal of all time.

      ZSC Lions beat a Chicago Blackhawks team that went on the same year to win the cup, and if memory serves was only Missing Hossa. The hawks dominated, but the point is the difference is very small now.

    When I was talking with my buddies earlier today, I remember talking about how devastated I would be if the Canucks lost.

    You know what? I just don’t care right now.

    That game was terrible, the series was terrible, and the season as a whole was pretty bad. The Bruins don’t deserve any of what they got, but whatever, they won. I’m glad Thomas and Seguin get a Ring, at least.

    This season, I just can’t comment on it. Went south with the Pacioretty injury, and became downright disgusting as soon as the playoffs started.

    So, whatever. If our Habs were good enough to beat the Cup Champs(They would’ve won if that Kelly goal was properly disallowed, and that’s what I’m sticking with), we’re not far from the promised land.

    Habs for the Cup in 2012!

  36. I have one word to describe this game for the Canucks….PATHETIC
    Don’t blame Luongo. Where was the Sedins and the Canucks offence. How could you NOT score a goal on the final game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs at your own building?

    I have one word to describe this game for the Bruins…{Would like to say Congrats}, but something serious wrong occured seeing Chara hoist the Cup. It will be a long summer for this habs fans, but its comforting to know that the Habs are one team that can beat the Bruins.
    I am happy though for Mark Recchi who possibly played in his last NHL game.

He was a Tournament All-Star in the Turin Olympics and the top scorer that year as well.

          He played on bad knees for most of his career, led Montreal through multiple playoff runs as their best player, came back with his best career season after nearly losing his EYE the previous year and never complained ONCE about the inferior talent he was expected to drag along with him.

    Ill say this, Vancouver fans are great, the “go Cannucks go” was quite something. They’re good sports, the players should be ashamed.

  75. slychard says:

    I take that back. Too harsh. Oh well. But I hope Ratchand gets his next season.
