No. 3 Boston Bruins vs. No. 5 Tampa Bay Lightning
GAME 7: BOS 1 – TBL 0

BOSTON – It was the final game. Win and advance to the Cup Finals. Lose, and you’ll be driving/flying home trying to figure out what you could have done differently.

It was a game that couldn’t have been any closer.

The score remained 0-0 through the first and second periods.

It wasn’t until 12:27 of the third period that one of the goaltenders finally allowed one through. Nathan Horton was the first to get on the scoreboard, and he would be the only.

Yes, the game had a very bare scoresheet as Horton scored the lone goal of the game, which also went without a single penalty.

The Bruins will now face the Vancouver Canucks to try and win their first Stanley Cup since 1972.

Just like Henrik Sedin of the Canucks, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara chose not to touch the Prince of Wales trophy.

SERIES: 4-3 Boston

EAST:

3. Boston Bruins – 4
5. Tampa Bay Lightning – 3

WEST:

1. Vancouver Canucks – 4
2. San Jose Sharks – 1
