Boston’s quest for the Cup ended with last minute Chicago rally.


We were two minutes away from a game seven in Chicago when the unthinkable happened. Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored seventeen seconds apart in the final 1:16 of the game, giving the Blackhawks a 3-2 and their second Cup win in four seasons.

It’s a little hard to put into words.

The Bruins came out of this abbreviated season with one of their better starts and a rather disappointing finish. The Bruins were half a period away from losing in game seven to the first round to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Then they fought back against the Rangers, taking them out in five. They swept the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Conference Finals.

Then the Bruins played the Chicago Blackhawks and fell in six games.

Serious hockey fans can’t be angry at this loss. This seemed to be Chicago’s year. They had a tremendous run at the beginning of the season(No matter what the people at ESPN said.) They fought just as hard to get the Finals and gave Boston and all the fans one of the most aggressive and nerve wracking series in recent memory.
