For Bruins fans, nothing is more iconic than Bobby Orr soaring through the air to win the 1970 Stanley Cup.

We have all seen the video footage, but I could seriously watch this GIF ALL DAY!

B’s Beat: Former Canucks GM Mike Gillis Truly Thought The 2011 Stanley Cup Final Was Over After Game Two (AUDIO)

All fans of the Boston Bruins were aware of the arrogance of the Vancouver Canucks during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final. The team & their fans thought the series was all but over after their Game Two victory. However, no one was oozing with more confidence than now former GM Mike Gillis.

James Dunthie of TSN recently shared this story:

Quick story: at the Cup Final, Vancouver wins the first two games in Vancouver. We go to Boston. We have our crew meal out at this Italian restaurant in Boston, so everybody. There’s like 30 people there. The cameramen, everybody.

Gillis and Aquilini happen to come into the same restaurant and they pop into the back room with us.

Aquilini barely said a word. Really nice — he bought several $500 bottle of wine. He bought a $2000 bottle of tequila that was spread around our crew, and he sat there, and Mike Gillis basically sat there and talked about how he built a champion.

And I sat there at that moment, like, listening to him — they were very nice — but, there was… Mike Gillis talked like he’d already won the Stanley Cup.

And I walked out of there going, man, if they lose this, like, he really thinks they’ve won the Stanley Cup. And Aquilini, the way he’s throwing around the booze — again, really nice guy, thank you, I appreciated the shot, my $400 shot of tequila or whatever it was — but they were acting like champions already.

Any surprise that the Canucks arrogance came to bite them right in the hind quarters?

Mike Gillis built this culture in Vancouver and it backfired in the worst way since they fell to the Bruins in 2011.

They won ONE single playoff game.

Gillis got rid of BOTH of his “franchise” goaltenders.

Karma is a B*TCH, it cost Mike Gillis his job & rightfully so.

What Every Eastern Conference Playoff Team’s Fanbase Is Praying To The Hockey Gods For (VIDEO)

The Boston Bruins have been BIG & BAD this season, laying waste to the NHL in March perching themselves on top of the league.

The fans of the Pens, Flyers, Habs, Lightning, Jackets, Rangers & Wings are doing their playoff duty praying to the hockey gods…

Keep praying & rocking the same underwear because you are going to need it!

This Boston Strong Goalie Mask Will Bring Tears To Your Eyes (PHOTO)

It has been about a year since the tragedy at the Boston Marathon, a day that will be forever woven into the minds of Bostonians and Americans.

There will be many tributes to honor those lost and injured last Patriots day. And this “Boston Strong” goalie mask is simply beautiful. It will surely bring tears to your eyes as you see the faces of Lu, Sean, Krystle & little Martin, who died at the marathon or perished defending the innocent.

Here is the story behind this incredible creation…

BostInno:

Kyle Acomb commissioned a mask from Dom Malerba from Pro’s Choice, a mask-making company north of Boston whose client list includes Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask. Montreal artist David Leroux of Diel Airbrush painted the mask, which Rask later autographed. It currently resides in Forum restaurant — ground zero of last year’s Marathon bombings.

The mask will be raffled off and the proceeds will be donated to the One Fund which assists those affected by the Boston Marathon Tragedy.

B’s Beat: The Struggles Of Reilly Smith

Despite winning NESN’s Seventh Player Award during yesterday’s matinee game against the Philadelphia Flyers; Reilly Smith’s season has been one big roller coaster.

Smith really flew out of the gate for the Bruins and made the lack of production from Loui Eriksson (due to two concussions) a non-factor in justifying the controversial Tyler Seguin trade on July 4th of last year. His performance was good enough to earn him a spot on Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand’s line.

It was with Bergy and Marchy that Smith’s game really flourished. In the first half of the season, before the Olympics, he performed excellently with 42 points in 57 games. Since the Olympic break; Reilly Smith has 8 points in 31 games.

I am not going to sugar coat it for the young winger, he has been completely ineffective and invisible for the past 31 games. In fact; it has gotten to the point where I am only noticing the guy when he blows a glorious scoring opportunity. His crossbar during yesterday’s game being a perfect example.

I am not hear to get down on the guy, because he does play well in all three zones thanks to tutelage from Bergeron, and he still makes good plays under pressure. To me he is trying too hard and constantly forcing plays to his linemates. He is also guilty of one of biggest pet peeves in all hockey… too many moves that results in a turnover.

There have been a number of Bruins who have done this very thing over the years; Brad Marchand is guilty of it often, Phil Kessel used to do it too (remember how many times he went off-sides because of that one extra move at the blue line?). Reilly has been doing it a lot lately in search of his confidence.
