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.

Dwayne Roloson did end up with the win in Game 7 last night, but he frequently stole the show by making 37 saves.

Zdeno Chara didn’t touch the Prince of Wales trophy, but he did put his own spin on the ceremony.
May 27, 2011, 11:35 PM EST
Dwayne Roloson nearly stole the game with his 37-save performance, but Nathan Horton’s goal was all Tim Thomas and the Bruins needed to win 1-0. This catapults Boston into its first Stanley Cup finals appearance since 1990.

Guy Boucher has a tough choice to make in Game 6. Will he go back to Dwayne Roloson or stick with Mike Smith? This post breaks down the pros and cons of going in both directions.
May 23, 2011, 10:00 PM EST
It’s been a tough road since Vincent Lecavalier won a Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Perhaps those low moments make this year’s run that much sweeter, though.

Many people will fixate on the Bruins giving up a 3-0 lead in their Game 4 loss, but maybe the Lightning were just so good the deficit didn’t matter.

This video covers the ups and downs of Steven Stamkos’ first three years in the NHL.
May 19, 2011, 11:30 PM EST
David Krejci scored about a minute into the game and that’s all the Bruins would need as Tim Thomas earned a 31-save shutout. Boston cruised to a 2-0 win and 2-1 series lead in Game 3.
May 18, 2011, 1:17 AM EST
The Bruins and Lightning can take away some good things from their first two games, but both teams have a lot to work on going into Game 3.

Tonight hasn’t been especially good to Roloson and the Lightning, but this Versus video discusses what still must be considered an outstanding run.
