I doubt he considered it for game 7. Luongo was so Jekyll & Hyde that series. 0, 2, 0 goals against at home prior to game 7. I don’t really blame them, you get to game 7 you sink or swim with the guy who got you there.Do you think Vigneault ever considered starting Schneider in Game 7? A great ‘what if?’. Luongo was just broken mentally by that point.
We're talking about Game 6 in 2008, right? Because if so, then me too. I was watching at something like 4 in the morning from a tent in Kuwait. I never really gave up on the sport, but it was the hardest to follow as an out of market Bruins fan, and so it had kind of fallen by the wayside for me, now, 12 years later, it's easily my favorite sport.It's the reason I fell back in love with the NHL after growing up in Chicago where half the Hawks games were blacked out. So you have that game to thank for my continued presence here.
Kessel's 1st goal was absolutely filthy. It still made me come out of my chair.Lucic - Krejci - Kessel to close that one out. But I was told Cliff hates the kids.
The Sturm goal was awesome, but Kessel goal to make it 4-3 is one of my favorite hockey plays of all time. Krejci indirect to Sturm who one touched a pass right on Kessel’s tape and one touch in.
It’s the best sporting anything I’ve ever been to. Rekindled my love.Was debating with my friends tonight. I said this was the most important (not best) period in Bruins history post 2000. We agreed that top 3 was this, 2011 Game 7 OT vs Montreal, and 2013 Game 7 3 period vs Toronto.
I still think this is #1. It brought hockey back in Boston. Marco Sturm will forever have a place in my heart.
