NHL STANLEY CUP FINALS: Boston adds its name to Lord Stanley’s Cup by beating Vancouver in game seven

The Boston Bruins have been added to that list of team’s who nobody thought would win the Stanley Cup. Since 2000, they join Colorado (2000-01), New Jersey (2002-03),¬†Tampa Bay (2003-04), Carolina (2005-06), Anaheim (2006-07), Pittsburgh (2008-09) and Chicago last year.

After a 39-year hiatus without winning a Stanley Cup, the Bruins stole the series from the favored-Vancouver Canucks, 4 games to 3.

Goaltender Tim Thomas, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the most valuable player of the NHL postseason, made 37 saves in posting the second shutout of the Finals.

Patrice Bergeron and rookie Brad Marchand scored two goals apiece, and the Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0 on Wednesday night to win bring their first championship to Beantown since 1972.

43-year-old Mark Recchi has won his third Stanley Cup with a third franchise, plans to retire.

The Vancouver Canucks are 41-years-old and have never won a Stanley Cup and this was the closest they came to doing so.

NHL STANLEY CUP FINALS: Vancouver goes up 2 games to 0 with 3-2 win


Alex Burrows scored the second-fastest overtime goal in finals history, giving Vancouver a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins and a 2-0 lead as they try to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Burrows circled the net and scored a stunner of a goal just 11 seconds into overtime at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

With Boston down 2-0, it brings to the forefront that only four teams have rallied from a 0-2 series deficit to win the Stanley Cup Finals in 46 tries.

Mark Recchi and Milan Lucic scored goals for the Bruins.

The fact that Boston lost, lies heavily on their goaltender Tim Thomas, who despite stopping 30 shots, gave away two goals by being out of position with being too overaggressive.

Bruins bring back 42-year-old Recchi to help mentor 18-year-old Tyler Seguin

42-year-old Mark Recchi will be sticking around the Boston Bruins to be a part of their youth movement.

Recchi signed a one-year contract to return to Boston for his 22nd NHL season, making the league’s oldest active player under contract. If 48-year-old Chris Chelios, who can become an unrestricted free agent, doesn’t return to the NHL, Recchi would become the oldest player in the league. Chelios played with the Atlanta Thrashers last season, his 26th NHL season.

By playing another season in Boston, it gives Recchi a chance to play with 18-year-old prospect Tyler Seguin, the number 2 overall pick in last week’s NHL draft.

A seven-time All-Star, Recchi leads active players with 922 assists and is second with 563 goals. He is ninth in career NHL games played with 1,571, but if he plays a full season in 2010-2011, he’ll move up as high as fourth all-time.

The Bruins reached the Eastern Conference semifinals this past season, taking a 3-0 lead over Philadelphia before the Flyers tied the series and the came back from a three-goal deficit in game 7 to advance. Boston is just the third NHL team to lose a playoff series it led by three games.

Recchi garnered 18 goals and 25 assists last season plus a team-leading six goals along with four assists in 13 playoff games. He was picked up by Boston from the Tampa Bay Lightning in March 2009. He has also suited up with Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Montreal, Carolina and Atlanta.
