This was the last Boston Bruins team to skate in the Stanley Cup Finals

You can re-live some highlights from the 1990 Adams Division Final series versus Montreal by clicking on this link.

Enjoy the energy of the old Garden. Tonight, the TD Garden did the old barn proud.

The 2011 Boston Bruins played hard and broke through for a 1-0 victory over Tampa Bay with Tim Thomas getting his 12th win and second shutout of the postseason. It was a game both teams could be proud of- they both skated well and it literally could have gone the way of the Lightning. In the end, the B's deserved the win- they had the better chances and thanks to Nathan Horton's late goal, his 8th of the playoffs on a sweet setup from David Krejci, the team goes back to the Stanley Cup championship series for the first time in 21 years.

Next up, the President's Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks. Four more wins.

Series starts on Wednesday. Until then, we'll keep the draft talk coming.

And not that Bruins fans are complaining, but the team reaching the finals means that Boston's second-rounder in 2012 now belongs to Toronto to finish out the payment for Tomas Kaberle.
