Today in Boston Bruins History: May 19

1974: A 1-0 shutout of the Boston Bruins by the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 6 crowns a new Stanley Cup Champion–but, of course, it’s not the Bruins.

1992: The Bruins lose 5-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 2 of the semifinals.

2004: The Montreal Canadiens shut out the Bruins 2-0 in Game 7 of the conference quarterfinals, ending the Bruins’ playoff run.

2011: Tim Thomas and the Bruins shut out the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 in Game 3 of the conference final. David Krejci puts away the game-winning goal, his fourth of the playoffs, securing a place in Boston Bruins history alongside Cam Neely for most game-winning goals in one playoff year. Andrew Ference scores too. Krejci’s goal, though, comes with a little over a minute elapsed in the first period. Also, Patrice Bergeron returns to the lineup after suffering a concussion at the end of the semifinal series. Enjoy a highlight reel of the game here:
