The Boston Bruins unveiled their 2011 Stanley Cup Championship rings on Tuesday at Boston Harbor Hotel on Tuesday, October 4th.
All players and some that have since left the team returned to celebrate on what some would call getting their personal trophies for the feat they accomplished on June 15th, 2011 against the Vancouver Canucks in a Game 7, winner-take-all series.
To get to this point, the Bruins had to complete four best-of-seven series. In three of these series, it had to be just that. Out of the four series that the Bruins were required to win the Cup, they had had to endure three complete seven-game series—a feat never before completed by any team in the history of the NHL.
It was a playoffs to remember.
It started with defeating the long-time divisional rival Montreal Canadiens in a Game 7 overtime win. The Bruins had a long history of losing Game 7s and some of those were at the hands of the Canadiens.
They avenged "the collapse" of the 2009-10 playoffs at the hands of the Philadelphia Flyers by sweeping them in four games. Their first Eastern Conference championship shot since 1992.
The series against the Tampa Bay Lightening went the distance with a one-goal win and brought the team to the finals for the first time since 1990.
The final piece of the puzzle had to go to the full seven games when the Bruins dispatched the Canucks 4-0 in the final game of the year, capturing the Stanley Cup for the first time in 39 years.
Speaking of the past, the rings have a look at the present while not forgetting the success of the past.
