#3 Boston Bruins / #5 Tampa Bay Lightning
Bruins win series 4-3 after a 1-0 win
Normally, Game Sevens go one of two ways: either a blowout or a close game of one goal. This had blowout all over it until team defense showed up.
The pace of the game was quick and it was an exciting game from the fan's perspective. We're sure that the teams didn't think it was a lot of fun going that fast.
The game was 0-0 until the last seven minutes when Tampa's defense had a pretty bad breakdown and Nathan Horton took advantage of it.
He had his stick on the ice waiting for the David Krejci pass. It was a pretty goal. And the game-winner.
A scary moment in the game was when a puck deflected off of Martin St. Louis's stick and hit Steven Stamkos in the visor then smashed into his nose.
He of course came back and played the rest of the game bleeding everywhere. But that's why we love hockey players.
The Bruins held onto the 1-0 lead and won the game in Boston.
The crowd was going insane when the Prince of Wales was brought out onto the ice.
Finally a good game and an exciting one at that.
Bring on the Finals.
