Check out some post-game reactions from both sides of the Bruins-Canucks Game 1 match in the 2011 Stanley Cup finals.

Both teams have negatives and positives to take from Game 1, but it’s tough not to wonder how much we really learned about this Bruins-Canucks series after a strange first set.
Jun 1, 2011, 11:04 PM EDT
Raffi Torres scored with less than 19 seconds left to give Vancouver a 1-0 Game 1 win and 1-0 series lead.

A penalty-packed first two periods in Game 1 left both teams shaking their heads while a David Krejci cross-check forced Dan Hamhuis to the Canucks’ locker room. Read all about the second period in this post.

Alex Burrows is probably primed for a suspension after biting Patrice Bergeron at the end of the first period of Game 1.

The Bruins and Canucks created a ton of chances in a wide-open first period, but the score remained 0-0 because of brilliant work by Tim Thomas and Roberto Luongo.

Which Bruins and Canucks are most likely to be considered “villains” in the 2011 Stanley Cup finals? Here are prime candidates from each team.

It would be bad enough if you judged the Cam Neely trade just by how his career (and Glen Wesley’s seven seasons) compared to Barry Pederson’s time. Yet when you follow all the assets the Bruins received thanks to trading Wesley later on, it’s clear Boston continues to benefit from that move.

It’s been a long time since the Canucks (’94) and Bruins (’90) last made it to the Stanley Cup finals, so the question is: are they built to avoid a similar drought after this run?
May 30, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT
Thrashers co-owner Rutherford Seydel discussed the Thrashers possible move, stating that many members of the ownership group tried their best to keep the team but admitted there “aren’t enough” of people in the group passionate enough to get something done.

The Bruins-Canucks series will require the most travel of any Stanley Cup finals series of the modern era and the second most all-time.

Tim Thomas pulled off a rare feat of being one of the best goalies in the regular season and the playoffs, but as you’ll see from this post, he needed to pull off a lot of rare feats to get to the NHL in the first place.

More and more, Boston’s captain Zdeno Chara is embracing the emotional side of his leadership role, according to CSN’s Joe Haggerty.

Some reporters are claiming the Thrashers-to-Winnipeg announcement could be made as early as Tuesday. There is at least a hint of hope for Thrashers fans, though, as a new potential local suitor reportedly emerged late last week.

Even at 43 years old, Mark Recchi manages to be a useful forward for the Bruins. Does he deserve to become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame once he retires, though? Let us know in the poll.

The Saint John Sea Dogs became the first ever Memorial Cup winner from Canada’s Maritimes region thanks to their 3-1 win against the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors. It was a redemptive performance for Sea Dogs goalie Jacob DeSerres, who gave up nine goals in last year’s Memorial Cup final against the Taylor Hall and Cam Fowler-fueled…

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren wouldn’t get into specifics about how the team will improve its goaltending while remaining under the salary cap. Interestingly enough, he didn’t totally shoot down the possibility of trading Jeff Carter, either.
May 28, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT
Cam Neely = Milan Lucic and Raymond Bourque = Zdeno Chara? Not exactly, but let’s compare the current Bruins to version that made it to the 1990 Stanley Cup finals anyway.
May 28, 2011, 4:10 PM EDT
The Canucks officially cleared Manny Malhotra to play, listing him as day-to-day. The possibility of him completing his improbable comeback in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals increased substantially, so the question is: how much of a difference could he make?
May 28, 2011, 3:32 PM EDT
This isn’t likely to make many Tampa Bay fans feel better, but Nathan Horton was fined for his water bottle-throwing incident from Game 6 after all.

The Bruins have won the vast majority of their games against the Canucks in the two team’s historical rivalry.
