Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins

Nathan Horton of the Boston Bruins in four games away from ending the longest title drought in the city. The epic Game 7 that no sanctions recommended for the first time in the playoff race at least two decades - 52 minutes without a goal - Horton was determined to make a cross-ice finish to David Krejci in the final minute of the third period. '1 -0 to the Bruins victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning for the Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals against the Vancouver Canucks. This is the first final of Boston by 21 years.

The Bruins have not won a title since 1972, barely 86 years of drought, the Red Sox are separated by the 2004 championship. Still, Friday night the hero recognizes that he heard a few mentions of the untitled series, which is older than any player in the locker room, except for the Bruins, Mark Recchi. "This is hockey country," said Horton. "Everybody wants to win it. We're trying. trying to do for ourselves and the fans do. feeling the pressure throughout the year."

The Bruins were the better team from the start, as the goalie Dwayne Roloson sent 15 shots in the first period - the first scoreless period in the series. He dropped shots came from almost all parts of the ice, including a leading group when he was the right path to turn away from Milan Lucic. Roloson faced 38 shots in total, as the Lightning were outshot in the first series.
