“How...how?”

I will say as someone who suffered through the Aaron Boone game, I can understand their pain. But that shit is hysterical.

@Dummy Hoy Dirty secret, but my brother is a pretty diehard MFY fan. I was at a client site in Philly that week, watching the game in the hotel bar. Sending him good natured ribbings throughout the evening. Naturally, mine tapered off as his increased. At the end of the game I sent him a one word text that started with F, anded with K, and rhymes with LUCK

Also F __LUCK_ Tom Wilson.

I was in Professor Thom's for game 7 vs. Toronto. There were these two loud-ass, obnoxious Leafs fans celebrating every goal (understandably) jumping around, and just really loving it in an otherwise quiet bar - right up until the 4-2 Horton goal.

The tying goal was one of the most cathartic things I've ever experienced. They left and watched OT somewhere else unfortunately.

The drunken Papaya Dog after that game was an all-timer

Yeah but you weren’t taping yourself at a party for reasons I’ll never understand.
That really wasn't a party.

I'm always so fascinated by the dude on the couch...he clearly doesn't actually care/doesn't know what's going on, yet has a $150 jersey on that seems to be customized. And the giggling girls...

I was at a house in Somerville that 5 friends lived at- 4 Sox fans and a Yanks fan. He's lucky we didn't murder him, especially the way he was acting.

Now I'm down the Dafoomie rabbit hole and man Game 6 in 08 against the Canadians was amazing too. I was in Japan watching a TiVo stream and Jack Edwards screaming 5-4 Boston still makes me shiver. Can the playoffs start already.
Oh man, I was in Iraq for this one, watching from my top bunk at zero dark thirty in the morning, trying not to wake the other 100 or so people in my giant warehouse tent up. That game was bananas.

And the kid in the front right is still sitting there, frozen in time.
The girl in the back left at the Bergeron tying goal. Huge smile on her face. Then for OT she’s back, and in a Leafs jersey. Huge smile on her face for the game winning goal.
Curious as to her story.

Not sure which goal was more euphoric and loud- Bergy's tying goal that night, Horton's game 7 winner against Montreal, Horton's goal in game 7 against Tampa, or any of the 4 during the early barrage against the Canucks in game 6 in 2011 (if I had to single out 1 goal, it'd be the Lucic goal to go up 2-0).

Ah, memories.

Loudest I've ever heard any sporting event. I couldn't hear myself think.

There is a longer version of that video. She starts the game with a Leafs sweater on but at some point takes it off. When the collapse happens they all (well, the guys) start harassing her to put it back on. She does.

I don't think she is a big fan.

Yeah she could probably care less about sports but dated one of those kids at the time and was dreading watching these games every other night for the next few weeks.

Makes me wonder about the alternate universe in which Tambellini picks Seguin.

Chiarelli left so much value on the table when he dumped "Half of Kane"; glad to see the B's potentially end up on the winning half of a trade.

Less important both in the moment and with the benefit of hindsight, but at the time (before all of the above) the Mark Savard OT winner against Philly could have been known in my house as the Invisible Ninja Genocide.

There’s a huge butterfly effect if Edmonton picks Seguin:
The Bruins are in a better position to win the cup in 2013 & 2014. IMO they win one of those.

The definitely go to the finals against LA in 2014, which means they pick 29 or 30 and Pastrnak goes somewhere else in the draft.

Chiarelli remains GM and Hall & Lucic are extended. Claude is still the coach.

in Edmonton, the Seguin, RNH center combo makes them just good enough to pick 4-7 in 2015, and they end up with Marner instead of McDavid, who goes to Buffalo.

And that’s just off the top of my head.

Do the Bruins win the 2011 cup without Seguin? He didn't do a ton in the playoffs but that game against Tampa changed that whole series. If they go down 0-2 they might not even make the finals.

I was at a dance lesson for my wedding dance on the night of that game, and if I recalled, I was very depressed because they were down when I started the lesson, and then when I checked the score afterwards, I was shocked that they won and couldn't wait to get home to see the highlights. One of the few times I wish I had seen something live to experience the joy of it happening so I can remember exactly what happened, like when Butler made the pick in the Seahawks Super Bowl where I think I almost scared my daughter out of the womb with my cheers.

I believe that they would have. The overall effect of having Hall (who was a better fit on the roster at the time) in the playoffs would have been greater than Seguin flashing for one game.

As much as it feels like the Bruins have been unlucky to not win 1 or 2 more in this run, that is a painful chart for Sharks fans.
