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.
