Boston Bruins Parade 2011
June 17, 2011 by staff
Boston Bruins Parade 2011, Leaving a 3-0 series against the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010 to escape, forget it. Edmonton Oilers 1988 and 1990, irrelevant. Too many men, 1979 against Montreal. Nothing but a distant memory. That is all. This is the pinnacle. Nothing to do but enjoy the moment, and hopefully we can witness again someday. But for now, there are parades to attend, photos for framing, to buy merchandise and videos on YouTube to see over and over again. It was logical that this team became a Bruins team that won the Cup the first to win three in a seven game playoff race. Of course I could not have been an easy road. For a team whose strength was in doubt only 13 months, who acted as if they had something to prove, not only his critics but themselves.
Turning up in two separate series after delivering the first two contests for the first (and second) time in franchise history. Going 1-3 in the Games. Playing in and, ultimately, win a game of Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in seven legendary history of the franchise. To succeed in spite of a successful power play unit. Boston’s first Stanley Cup has captured after facing the Montreal Canadiens in the playoffs.
A maximum of 28-playoff games schedule, the Bruins played 25.
They responded to Zdeno Chara was recovering from dehydration in a round when Bergeron was sidelined with a slight bruising in the deciding game conference semifinals, “and allied themselves after seeing Nathan Horton Aaron Rome final post-season in the third game Cup Finals.
To win a championship requires not only talent but a little luck too.
An unlucky bounce could only have ended the Bruins season months ago. For all its harshness, the defense was porous Boston sometimes. The mentality of double-no-break coach Claude Julien has his team cannot and have always been the most popular choice in the Axis, but ultimately proved effective.
Of course, Tim Thomas Boston had to rescue several times. In what was one of the most impressive displays of goaltending in the history of the National Hockey League, goalkeeper, and 37 floors appeared to be using their 17-year journey of inspiration, knowing that this may have been his last chance to capture the ultimate prize in hockey.
To my surprise, after his historic regular season, Thomas started the post-season in a somewhat disappointing (disappointing as it appeared to be mortal after all). But the advance of the Bruins, the game of Thomas not only returned to form the regular season, but also became a true legend.
Thomas was not the only Bruin to make history.
Patrice Bergeron’s name is added to a list of players formed by Bill Carson, Roy Conacher, Bobby Bauer, and Bobby Orr y. All of which are responsible Stanley Cup Boston decisive goals.
The Bergeron of the Bruins 25 years with more time, join the organization as a rookie 18 years old in 2003. He has been with the franchise through some of its darkest moments, and now celebrated as the Bruins back to glory.
Brad Marchand captured the rookie franchise playoff scoring title in an incredible postseason run. While the age of 23 still has a long way to go in terms of self-control, which was an effective agitator, which often provides the spark Boston on many nights.
Marchand will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but one has to imagine general manager Peter Chiarelli will be more than happy to block the young end in the coming years.
Throughout the season the coach Claude Julien became the target of much of their technical scrutiny sometimes questionable, but certainly silenced the critics and skeptics himself out like-minded coach to Jacques Marin, Guy Boucher, Vigneaut and Alan. Julien had not advanced beyond the semifinals of the Conference; there is a good chance he would not return behind the bench in 2011. Now it is safe to say that Julien stick for a while.
Like many Julien questioned for years, every time that Boston has suffered a slump, or lost a key game or series, the captaincy of Zdeno Chara has been questioned. Not only are the suggestions that Chara is not fit to be an offensive leader for the Norris trophy winner, are unfounded. While lifting the Cup of about ten feet into the air after Game Seven, Chara gave a primal scream that seemed to serve as his response to critics who have questioned him.
Mark Recchi for this Stanley Cup final acts as its achievement. Twenty years in the league and three Stanley Cups later, Recchi is a shoe in the Hall of Fame. While his leadership will surely be missed in the locker room, there is a possibility that the age of 43 has a management role within the organization.
Milan Lucic was not the only native of Vancouver to win the Cup in his hometown Wednesday night. Name of Cam neely, will finally appear in the Stanley cup.
The President of the Bruins had two chances to capture the Cup as a player, but eventually came under that goal.
Indirectly acquired the trade that brought Neely to Boston, Lucic played its part in ensuring that his mentor, would eventually be able to win it all.
There are so many story lines surrounding this championship for Boston, which is impossible to appreciate all one day, removed from the victory. In any case, the flag was lifted to the roof garden early October TD represent an unforgettable season for the Boston Bruins.
39 years of anguish and quasi-have been erased. Just as those who witnessed Bobby Orr flying through the air in 1970, forty years from now we’ll reminisce about the historical performance of Tim Thomas. And we will share stories of seeing the Cup-winning team roll in Copley Square in the city around the place. These memories will become more precious with time. In a way, winning was only the beginning. This is in Boston. The Bruins were Stanley Cup champions.
