2009: The Panthers shut out the Bruins 1-0 and win in a shootout. In the second period, the Panthers are outshot 19-1–yes, they managed just one shot on goal. The score sheet for this game is hilarious: no scoring at all through three periods, the overtime period, and then it takes a four-round shootout before someone finally scores and ends it.

2011: The Bruins beat the Sabres 6-2. Tyler Seguin scores twice, Brad Marchand has a goal, Rich Peverley scores, Nathan Horton does too and so does Chris Kelly. This is the infamous game where Milan Lucic runs into Ryan Miller, who came far out of his crease to play the puck. Afterwards, Miller lets everyone know that he feels Lucic is a gutless piece of…well, number two.
