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.

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.

You’ve gotten all the analysis you need, now you get to hear from us as we put our money where our mouth is and pick who wins the Stanley Cup.

After last year’s Stanley Cup Final, there were fans and pundits who claimed that goaltending wasn’t as important as it used to be. The Blackhawks thought Antti Niemi was replaceable after winning the Stanley Cup and the Philadelphia Flyers came within two games of a championship with a goaltender that ended up playing most of…

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.

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.

What a Game 7 that was and you’d better believe there’s a few thoughts we’ve got about one of the better Game 7s we’ve seen.
May 27, 2011, 11:35 PM EDT
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.

Keith Jones and Jeremy Roenick take a look ahead to tomorrow night’s Game 7 in Boston to see what each team needs to do to make the Stanley Cup finals.
May 26, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Five thoughts, seven games, nine goals in Game 6, and a whole lot of drama on tap for Game 7 on Friday night.

Need your warm up before Game 6 in Tampa, Florida tonight? Sure you do, and we’ve got it for you here.
May 25, 2011, 4:11 PM EDT
Tonight’s Game 6 between Boston and Tampa Bay has the possibility of seeing the Bruins lock up their first appearance in the Stanley Cup finals since 1990 or it sees the Lightning force a Game 7. Keith Jones and Mike Milbury take a look at what happens tonight.

Last night’s Game 5 in Boston gave us quite the smorgasbord of stuff to think about including Tim Thomas’ toughness, Guy Boucher’s curious goaltending choices, Tomas Kaberle’s play, and the life of Steve Downie.
May 24, 2011, 2:26 PM EDT
Intentionally or not, Tim Thomas gave the Lightning bulletin board material going into Game 5. Then he muted their comments with an outstanding 33-save performance, highlighting an already-impressive playoff run.
May 23, 2011, 11:57 PM EDT
The Lightning dominated long stretches of Game 5, but Tim Thomas made 33 saves to help the Bruins steal a 3-1 win. Read all about how Boston earned their 3-2 series lead in this post.
May 22, 2011, 11:57 PM EDT
After the Bruins tough loss in Game 4, Tim Thomas may have accidentally given the Lightning the bulletin board material this series has been lacking.
May 21, 2011, 5:38 PM EDT
Once again a 3-0 lead wasn’t good enough for the Bruins as Tampa Bay rallied back to take out Boston 5-3 to even up the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2.
May 21, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT
After a brutal first period, the Lightning stormed back to tie things up in the second period thanks to Teddy Purcell’s two goals and solid goaltending from Mike Smith.
May 21, 2011, 3:24 PM EDT
A lot of people counted Tim Thomas out this season after an off-year in 2009-10. Anyone who followed his career knows that Thomas won’t just give up, though.
May 21, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT
A dominating first period from Patrice Bergeron and the Bruins has them ahead of Tampa Bay 3-0 after one.

Will the Bruins take a commanding lead in the Eastern Conference finals or will Tampa Bay even things up? Keith Jones and Mike Keenan take a look ahead at this afternoon’s Game 4.
May 20, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT
From thoughts on Tim Thomas, to Victor Hedman, to the Thrashers’ likely move to Winnipeg we’ve got a lot to figure out here.
May 19, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT
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 19, 2011, 7:07 PM EDT
