1989: Playing the Kings again brings a 5-4 game, but this time the Bruins are the victors.

1990: Jordan Caron is born in Montreal, Quebec. Caron spent four seasons in the QMJHL, three of them with Rimouski, before graduating up to the big time. In his junior career, he never had fewer than 40 points a season (combining his 09-10 points total of 20 with Rimouski and his 09-10 points total of 33 with Rouyn-Noranda). In 2009, he was selected 25th overall by Boston in the draft, not long after the Oceanic hosted the 2009 Memorial Cup. Then he signed with Boston in March 2010 and started the 2010-11 season with the Bruins. His first goal came in October 2010 and, though he spent most of that season with Providence, he was still given a Stanley Cup ring and a spot in the team photo. In 2011-12, he reversed it, spending more of the season in Massachusetts than Rhode Island and scoring 15 points in 48 games with the Bruins.

1991: The Bruins win 4-1 over Detroit.

1993: Visiting Detroit this time brings the Bruins a 6-1 loss.

2006: The Sabres best the Bruins 5-4 in a shootout. PJ Axelsson, Marc Savard, Glen Murray and Mark Mowers score for Boston, but the Sabres broke the tie.
