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.
