My brother actually just called there. He said they expect to reach capacity around 6:30-7ish, based on the C's Game 7 last year.

My friends were all actually planning to go there for the game, but we all kinda decided to scrap those plans last minute for a whole host of reasons. We are going to watch it at my parents' house, which is where we all basically grew up and fell in love with hockey. It's the place that reminds me of the countless hours playing street hockey in the driveway, playing NHL 94 on Sega, lying on the floor listening to Fred and Turk lionize Ray Bourque and Cam Neely, waking up at 5:30am to go to my pee wee games, hurrying home after little league games to see the Stanley Cup Playoffs on ESPN, with Steve Levy and Gary Thorne doing PBP and Bill Clement on color. My mom (all mom jokes aside) is honestly the biggest Bruins fan I know. Back when I was too young to stay up past the first period (always asking to wait until the next commercial to go to bed), she would always leave me a written recap of the game for when I woke up in the morning. She still texts me during big moments of big games, she hangs up posters and memorabilia of Bruins players around her classroom, and has watched as many games as I have this year.

All of these memories happened at my parents' house, with all my childhood friends and (of course) my parents. It's only fitting that that's where I watch the game tonight, as there's really no other place I'd rather be if they win it all. I was there in 2004 to celebrate the biggest Sox win of my life, and it's the perfect place to be to celebrate the biggest Bruins win of my life with the people who mean the most to me.

It all ends at the beginning.





What a post! Great, great stuff.


Let's go, B's. Have fun tonight and win the last game you play this season.

Unbelievable post dude. It gave me chills because it reminded me of growing up with the B's. Somewhere in a box at my Grandma's is the entire 1988 Bruins-Oilers cup final on Beta because I was too young (9 years old) to stay up and watch the game. I watched the next morning before school with my cereal bowl and fully wired remote control, fastforwarding the commercials and Oiler goal celebrations. This isn't just for fun....we need this!

It's less than nine hours to puck drop. I'm a wreck, nothing is getting done at the office and I'm seriously considering pounding down a few brews at lunchtime before actually doing any kind of work.

The only championship I haven't witnessed is a Stanley Cup (being a three year old in NYC who didn't know what hockey and the Bruins were in 1972 doesn't count). I didn't really get into hockey until 1980 or so after the Olympics and being around a bunch of rabid Islanders fans. I thought 1983 was going to be the year after Park's OT winner in Game 7 against the Sabres. And it might have been had the Bruins capped off their rally in Game 1 of the conference finals at home against the Islanders. Or for that matter if Peeters hadn't played like Luongo in the games played at the Coliseum.

We've been through the years from 1988-1992. 1990 and especially 1991 still hurt as the Bruins were every bit as good as their opponents (Samuelsson's garbage will never be forgotten). Then we had the false alarms from Lacher and Raycroft. And we all know about the past few years.

That all ends tonight. I've been lucky enough to witness the Sox finally winning it all (and then doing it again) and the Celtics and Steelers (sorry guys) winning after a quiet generation. Other than the Sox in 2004, this though would be the crowning achievement.

Let's do this for all the guys who should have hoisted the Cup but just never got over the hump, like Bourque, Neely and Middleton. And do this for your fallen mates Savard and Horton. Just do this.

Great post, this one hit me hard.

I also grew up in a hockey household. My parents used to love watching me play hockey, they'd come to every single practice and never missed a game or tournament. When I was 8 I quit baseball because it wasn't exciting enough for me. Later that winter my Dad found out that Bobby Orr was going to be signing autographs in a local bank in Hyannis and wanted to bring me to meet him. We ended up getting a flat tire a mile from the bank and abandoned his truck and ran to the bank hoping we could get there in time. We were one of the last one's in line, but I got to meet Bobby Orr and get his autograph. While at the bank there was a kid in front of me with hockey pants and shinpads on and I looked at my dad and told him I wanted to play hockey. Unbeknownst to my mom, my dad had brought me down to sign up for hockey the following week. My mom, being the awesome lady that she is, immediately brought me to the local sporting good store to outfit me in hockey gear (not knowing a thing about hockey equipment and not really being able to afford it).

My mom loves to tell the story of my first hockey practice - I showed up to the rink with my new equipment and no idea what to do. I sat down in the locker room while my dad helped me put on my equipment. I didn't have a jersey or hockey socks, so I wore a sweatshirt over my shoulder pads and sweatpants over my shinpads - my old man tied my skates and I was off. As practice wore on and I was falling all over the ice, my mom turns to my dad and says "He's going to hate it!" The practice ended with a scrimmage and my first goal as a hockey player - as I got the puck in the slot and tried to shoot the puck, I fell face forward and managed to get the puck in the back of the net; I immediately jumped up and looked at my parents. As I came off the ice I looked at my parents and told them "I love it!" and never looked back.

Now that I live in Ohio and far away from my parents, it's always a bit hard at times like this when I realize I can't be at home sharing these memories with my parents. One of the best things about sports is being able to share memories with the people you love.

I've never been this nervous for a chance to win a championship game. In 2004 and 2007 the Sox were in the midst of sweeps so both game 4s had little pressure to them. This is for everything. An entire season of ups and downs, injuries and triumphs all distilled into 60 minutes of frantic play. 106 games worth of effort balanced on the knife's edge. If it wasn't for beer I would not make it.

The only thing in recent memory more nerve wracking was the 2004 ALCS especially Games 6 and 7. The World Series were basically fait accomplis. And once the Celtics won Game 4 in LA, that series was pretty much over.

This though is like a lead weight in the pit of the stomach.

Thanks for the kind words. I've spent the morning just thinking about all the memories I have with the sport from growing up all the way through Monday night, and it's been pretty awesome. It's the greatest sport in the world. Let's have some fun tonight.

Win the game. Enjoy the ride. Protect the Civic.

Win this for players like Tim Thomas. The guy never, ever doubted his abilities to be a NHL goalie. Being a Vermont native, I was fortunate enough to go to a lot of his college games. His team with Marty St. Louis and Eric Perron is the best UVM team I ever saw. Timmy has had a long, strange journey that has taken him across the globe to chase his dream. This is why I love sports and made it my career is for guys like Tim Thomas. He doesn't take himself too seriously, loves to do what he does, and is very good at it.

Win it for Marc Savard. His career may be over, so if it is I want nothing else than the final act of his career is bringing the Stanley Cup to his hometown.

Win it for Nathan Horton. He's totally changed his image from soft goal scorer to effective two-way player. To be taken out with a cheap shot is extremely tough to take.

Win it for Cam Neely. He was in Savard's position with his career cut short of injuries. There isn't another person in Boston that deserves to hoist the Cup tonight than him.

Win it for Milt Schmidt. We don't know how many more times he'll be able to witness a Bruins team this close.

Win it for my sister. She's a big reason why I'm into hockey as she played the game growing up and I didn't. My first experiences with the game is going to her games and that got me to learn to skate and play pond hockey.

Win it for all the old-time hockey fans who have been with this team for much longer than I have. I've enjoyed the ride with all of you guys.

Win it because we can't let this Canucks team win. They are EVERYTHING that's wrong with sports today. Talking and not doing, cheap shots, and overall dirty play. We won't be denied tonight. This is our time.

TFP's comments made me think about how fortunate we are to be able to live and breath this game nowadays.

I remember when TV38 wasn't enough to satiate my hockey fix and how excited I watch another game, any game. ESPN carries out of town games? Sweet! NHL 2Night on the Deuce? Hell yeah I'm staying up for highlights. Awesomeness.

Don Cherry's "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Hockey" in the VHS player before every single game (street, pond, ice ... didn't matter)? Done and done.

Rainy day in the dead of summer? Fire up NHL 94, gimme the Hawks (C'mon ... Roenick and Amonte are locals!) and I'm going to make Gretzky's head bleed.

This is the culmination of all that. I'm so friggin' excited for this.

I haven't been able to find much about the Vancouver line-up. AV had hinted that someone might be back tonight (Hammuis?) I'm guessing he'd be pretty useless as he hasn't been skating so maybe they'd dress Ballard as a 4th line forward/7th D-man?

It does sound like Edler will be playing. Either way their D is really banged up, the B's just need to get that one early one!

I've spent along time lurking SOSH, particularly this subforum. I did so because the passion I found here echoes my own experiences, first a little kid playing hockey and now as a fan. I've found the site a great place to get information and a good chuckle through good times and bad. Never really felt comfortable posting with all the knowledge in the forum, but figured there's no time like the present to do so. Mainly, it's to share in the experience of once in a lifetime experience, but also to thank the regulars in this forum for making the last few years as a Bruins fan so enjoyable. Until I started reading this forum, I felt like no one still rooted for the Bruins the way I did. Thanks for proving me wrong and for helping to bring the Bruins back to forefront for many.

I wasn't nervous at all until I started reading this thread.

In 1970 there was no pressure because the only real cause for concern was whether the Bruins would suffer the ignominy of being the first Eastern Conference team to lose a postseason game to an opponent from the all-expansion-team Western Conference.

In 1972 the Rangers were legit and took the Bruins to six games, but the Bruins were so unbelievably strong that there was never any serious doubt that they would prevail.

Tonight I don't know what to expect, but the Bruins have been pretty damn good on the road this season; they can do this.

Anyone hear the 65 year old guy that called in to Gresh And Zo? Started talking about how the team lost him so many years ago but his daughter made him watch this year, etc and he just lost it, started crying on the air and said he had to watch the game alone tonight at home as there is just too much emotion. Great stuff.

Can't wait to get home and watch this with my 2 sons and daughter, all hockey players. It has been great enjoying this playoff run with them. My 9 year old has been allowed to stay up for the Game 7s in this playoff run so he'll be next to me tonight. He had to make a time capsule for his 4th grade class that will be opened when he graduates in 2019. We included some stories about this playoff run. I can't wait to read those in 8 years when we talk about Game 7 tonight.
