The Boston Bruins have experienced this before, although what transpired Saturday night against the New Jersey Devils doesn’t even compare to last June.
With a one-goal lead and less than two minutes remaining in the third period, the Bruins gave up two power play goals against to the Devils within a span of 23 seconds to lose 4-3.
The Bruins had actually jumped out to a 3-1 lead after the first period, and looked like they could go into cruise control against the struggling Devils, who recorded just their second victory of the season.
Squandering this latest one-goal lead in the waning minutes was still stunning, but nowhere close to what happened in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final when the Bruins faced off against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Holding a one-goal lead and poised to send the series to a decisive seventh game, the Bruins surrendered two goals in 17 seconds and the Blackhawks, as a result of their improbable turn of fortune, hoisted the Stanley Cup.
