Bruins at Canucks – 06/15/2011 – NHL.com – Recap

VANCOUVER — The Boston Bruins have gone from chokers to champions in 13 months. They capped pick-your-hero night with a Stanley Cup celebration.

Tim Thomas foiled the Vancouver Canucks one last time to win the Conn Smythe Trophy and second-liners Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron provided the offense that brought the Stanley Cup back to Boston for the first time in 39 years. In the process of celebrating their 4-0 win at Rogers Arena in Game 7 on Wednesday night, the Bruins also erased the bitter memory of last year’s historic collapse against Philadelphia in the second round.

“We never, never quit, and that’s what I’m proud of,” Boston coach Claude Julien said. “They’re so deserving of what has happened here. It’s not a fluke. It’s something they earned.”
