Here it is folks. Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Win, or go home.
The story lines are endless:
Good vs. Evil. Thomas vs. Luongo. Sedin's vs. Marchand. I can go on forever.
From Burrow's bite to Horton's concussion, all the way to Roberto Luongo's famous "pump my tires" press conference, this series certainly hasn't lacked flair.
Normally, the glitz and glamour of the postseason is assigned to superstar goal scorer's like the Sedin twins, or the relentless Ryan Kesler. This time, the fame was reserved for a 37-year-old goaltender named Timmy Thomas. What he has done this series is bordering on record breaking, and he is almost unanimously regarded as the eventual Conn Smythe Stanley Cup MVP award winner (whether the Bruins win or lose tonight), barring a total collapse in Game 7.
Tonight's game is going to be dirty, fast, and extremely hard fought by both teams. Whoever wins the Cup will not only transform a fan-base, but an entire city.
Ryan Kesler said it best: "If we win tomorrow, we become legends."
Here are five reasons why the Bruins will become legends.
