Today in Boston Bruins History: May 13
1978: Like the year before, the Bruins meet the Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup Final. In Game 1, they lose 4-1.
Since not much else of note happened on May 13 in Boston Bruins history, let’s flash back a year to the eve of the Eastern Conference Final series against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Many people in the know had low expectations for the Lightning–some were surprised that they made the playoffs at all–but then they took down the Pittsburgh Penguins in seven games and the Washington Capitals in a four-game sweep (much like the Bruins sweeping the Philadelphia Flyers), storming (pardon the pun) into the competition for the Prince of Wales Trophy.
Here are some pre-series interviews with Bruins personalities ahead of the conference final. Topics include the challenges the Lightning could present, the time between series and the team’s moods as they prepare for the next step.
