The Canucks took home a nice amount of trophies/awards during the 2011 NHL Awards, but they couldn’t fill the gap left by a squandered Stanley Cup opportunity.

Zdeno Chara delivered on his goal when he came to Boston five years ago: to win a Stanley Cup.

Patrice Bergeron has come a long way since his career was seemingly derailed by concussions. Want proof? He faced the enviable question of deciding which was more thrilling: winning a gold medal or the Stanley Cup. Bergeron opted for the Cup.

Here’s your requisite list of injuries – most of them confirmed, though not all – for the Vancouver Canucks now that the playoffs are over.

While many reacted to the Vancouver riots with disgust, some citizens/fans decided to help clean up the mess. (This post also features an update regarding some of the fallout.)

While many Canucks fans will want to get rid of him, Roberto Luongo seems positive about the team’s chances of getting back to the Stanley Cup finals.

Here are some of the most memorable (and unsettling) photos we’ve seen from the ugly Vancouver riot. Warning: these images might be disturbing. (Updated with the “rioters in love” photo.)

Despite widely being considered a solid team, the Bruins still surprised many by winning the 2011 Stanley Cup. Can they pull it off again next year? Check out this post for some thoughts and that provide your own opinion by voting in the poll.

Check out Star and Net Cam footage from Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup finals.

In a scene that was sadly reminiscent of how locals reacted to the Game 7 defeat of the 1994 Vancouver Canucks, riots broke out following the team’s 4-0 loss to the Boston Bruins tonight.

Shortly after winning his third Stanley Cup, Mark Recchi made his rumored retirement official tonight. He shouldn’t have many regrets after a prolific 22-year career, either.

While most people were expecting Tim Thomas to win the Conn Smythe Trophy whether he won or lost, pitching a 37-save shutout in Game 7 solidified his historic run. Read more about his journey (and the many records he broke along the way) in this post.

Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and Tim Thomas are emerging as Boston’s Game 7 heroes through two periods, giving the Bruins a 3-0 lead.

The latest report indicates that tonight’s Game 7 will be the final NHL game of Mark Recchi’s 22-year career, whether he wins or loses.
Jun 14, 2011, 6:43 PM EDT
Mark Recchi has already enjoyed an outstanding NHL career, but one more Stanley Cup victory would really put the cherry on top of his 22-year run.

Neither teams have been to a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals with their main core groups (if ever), but they’ve already played in a Game 7 or two in this year’s playoffs. Let’s look back at how they played in those games.
Jun 14, 2011, 1:56 PM EDT
The Bruins and Canucks will play in the 16th Game 7 in Stanley Cup finals history on Wednesday night. Let’s take a look at how the other 15 turned out.
Jun 14, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT
Mason Raymond won’t just miss Game 7 after Johnny Boychuk caught him with an awkward hit in Game 6. A vertebra compression fracture will likely sideline him between three and six months overall.
Jun 14, 2011, 12:03 PM EDT
The Canucks’ embarrassing Game 6 loss was a huge blow to the team and the fans, but everyone else excitedly thought: “We get a Game 7!”
Jun 14, 2011, 4:25 AM EDT
With just one save, Tim Thomas will pass former Canucks goalie Kirk McLean’s all-time mark for saves in a single playoff year (they’re currently locked up at 761). As impressive as that record might be, the flamboyant Bruins goalie hopes to surpass him in a more profound way by winning Game 7, too.

Last year, Danny Briere didn’t get much attention for leading the 2010 playoffs in scoring. Could the same thing happen for the current playoff points leader, David Krejci?
