Bruins Force Game 7 After Win

By their own admission, the Bruins aren't the flashiest team in the NHL. They don't have the stars who sell jerseys and attract national TV ratings. They were the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, didn't win a regular-season game against Montreal, and were considered a pushover for the Canadiens en route to yet another Stanley Cup.

...And in the end, the Bruins kicked the Canadiens in the teeth when Marco Sturm, with 2:37 remaining in regulation, slammed the rebound of his own shot past goalie Carey Price to provide the 5-4 victory.

"I don't think I've ever played a game like that," said David Krejci, who set up Boston's final two goals (Phil Kessel's second goal gave the Bruins a 4-3 lead with 4:15 to go). "It was a crazy third period." - Boston Globe

This obviously comes as a surprise to many.
