Today in Boston Bruins History: May 16
1974: After winning Game 1 of the series, then losing the next three, the Boston Bruins know they’re on the brink of being eliminated by the Philadelphia Flyers–so they win 5-1 in Game 5. However, obviously this comeback isn’t enough to cement another Cup win in Boston Bruins history.
1978: The Bruins lose 3-2 to the Montreal Canadiens in overtime of Stanley Cup Final Game 2.
1999: The Bruins win 5-3 over the Buffalo Sabres in Game 5 of the conference semifinals.

Also, Patrice Bergeron is seen at full practice, giving his teammates hope for his speedy return to the ice.
